This third Law and Order series involves the criminal justice system from the criminal's point of view.
The following statement appears at the beginning of each episode: "In New York City's war on crime, the worst criminal offenders are pursued by the detectives of the Major Case Squad. These are their stories." This is the only Law & Order series where the opening statement does not begin with the words "In the criminal justice system..."
Detective Robert Goren:
One thing this line of work teaches us is that guys will do anything for love.
The detectives often discuss elements of their cases openly in front of people who they have just questioned. This would not occur in real life as they would risk having the person who overheard them potentially contact someone who might be a suspect.
The version of the show shown in the UK on Channel Five has a completely different version of the opening credits with different music.
