Goofs

When the hazmat team is scanning the restaurant with their Geiger counters the sound they were making was a high pitched beeping/squealing, like the sound a metal detector makes. When a Geiger counter detects elevated radiation levels it makes a clicking sound. This sound is made because a Geiger counter is a tube filled with an inert gas which has a high-voltage wire running down the center. Whenever a high energy particle, like a radioactive isotope, comes into contact with the gas it creates an electric charge which discharges onto the wire in the middle, that discharge is what makes the clicking sound.

Sweeping it clean
16 May 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This one gets good and personal for Chris Noth. The victim here is Lee Tergesen who has been given radiation poisoning similar to what killed a Russian dissident in real life. Tergesen is a reporter who took Detective Mike Logan's part way back when on Law And Order prime Logan punched out a city councilman and got exiled to Staten Island.

Poor Tergesen. They find out that he was collateral damage that the real target was another reporter played by Rebecca Shor whom he had a long relationship with that was pretty romantically intense for a while.

All I can say on that end is two things. First the NYPD is running into all kinds of interference from the Feds who are invoking national security all over the place. Captain Eric Bogosian gets into the investigation with some personal contact of his own with Ned Eisenberg departing from his usual role on SVU as an oily defense attorney.

Secondly though it leads to nothing in the end because the folks behind it really know how to sweep clean.
