Danielle "Dani" Beck, formerly Danielle Dooley, was a Danish detective assigned to Manhattan's Special Victims Unit. She briefly replaced Olivia Benson as Elliot Stabler's partner when Benson was temporarily undercover as Persephone. Dani temporarily had a romantic relationship with Stabler in "Underbelly". Dani eventually returned to the Warrants Squad.
Nielsen was cast to replace Mariska Hargitay, who plays Olivia Benson while she was on maternity leave from production. When Hargitay returned to the show after leave, Nielson departed.
Beck immigrated to the US from Denmark. Beck's husband was a New York police officer who was killed four years before Beck joined SVU. She is fluent in French, which she used to comfort and gain the trust of a rape victim who was a native speaker. (SVU: "Recall")
