Matic is said to have served in the "Serbian Army" from 1989 to 1993. There was no such thing during this period. The Yugoslav People's Army dissolved in 1992. There were Bosnian Serb paramilitary units toward the end of this period, but Matic specifically said he served in the infantry. See more »

Rape in war and peace
2 November 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This particular episode of Criminal Intent is one sad commentary on the human condition. There's only one real villain in this story, Ritchie Coaster who is a Serbian refugee and in the wars that followed the breakup of Yugoslavia in the Nineties the armies used a rape as a weapon of war. Now that it's peace time Coaster still takes pleasure in his work as an enforcer for loan sharks.

I can't go into this whole story because it involves the kidnapping of a yuppie's family and what happens in their incarceration. No one comes out looking good here and no one really wants to cooperate with Major Case for their own reasons. Even the person who originally alerted the police backs down.

To see how justice gets done here is to see Vincent D'Onofrio at his eccentric best.
