Review

A teenaged girl knocks on the door of her home. She ran away four years earlier after a family argument and has been missing ever since. She’s almost unrecognisable to them – much thinner than she was, very pale and extremely disturbed – but explains that an unknown man kidnapped her, imprisoned her in a filthy concrete basement and used her as a sex slave. Yet she seems unable, or perhaps reluctant, to help the detectives
find her attacker.

Ellen Woglom gives a convincing performance as the emotionally damaged youngster – which is more than can be said for Benson and Stabler’s good cop/bad cop routine
in the interrogation room. The suspect may fall for their role play, but there’s no way you will.

Summary

The detectives investigate when a woman appears on a family's doorstep claiming to be their daughter, who went missing four years ago. She says she had been abducted and kept as a sex slave, and although some details of her story do not check out Benson is sure she has been abused, and is determined to uncover the truth of the case. Crime drama, starring Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni.
