About the Show
Detective Mike Logan (Chris Noth) and his partner, Detective Wheeler (Julianne Nicholson), make up the Major Case Squad alongside long-time partners Detectives Robert Goren (Vincent D’Onofrio) and Alexandra Eames (Kathryn Erbe). The two Major Case Squad detective teams will split the caseloads week to week.
“Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” takes viewers into the minds of its criminals while following the psychological approaches the Major Case Squad uses to solve the crimes. In true Sherlock Holmes-fashion, D’Onofrio (“Men in Black”) stars as Detective Goren, an exceptionally bright homicide investigator with well-honed instincts that match up favorably with his criminal quarry. Likewise, his partner, Detective Eames (Erbe, “Oz”), brings an independence and stylish edge to her work that meshes well with Goren.
Detective Logan, (Golden-Globe nominated Noth, “The Perfect Man,” “Sex and the City”) who was exiled to Staten Island after punching a city Councilman ten years ago on “Law & Order” (1990-1995), teams with partner Detective Wheeler (Nicholson), who asks the question “why, ” balancing out Logan’s “who, what, when and where” approach.

He brings Wheeler with him to Major Case – he is her mentor. Captain Ross is divorced and a New York history buff.
