Danielle "Dani" Beck, formerly Danielle Dooley, is a Danish detective assigned to Manhattan's Special Victims Unit. She briefly replaces Olivia Benson as Elliot Stabler's partner when Benson takes an undercover assignment.

HistoryEdit

Beck is a widow; her husband, fellow NYPD detective Michael Dooley, was murdered while on duty. His murderer was never caught.

There is some romantic tension between Beck and Stabler, and they share a kiss in "Underbelly"; however, they never take their relationship to the next step.

Beck leaves SVU after she bonds with an abused child and takes her in, only to find that there is nothing she can do to help her; disillusioned, she returns to her original assignment in the Warrants Squad.

Behind the scenesEdit

Nielsen was cast to replace Mariska Hargitay, who plays Olivia Benson, while the latter was on maternity leave. When Hargitay returned to the show, Nielson departed.

Officer-involved shootingsEdit

TriviaEdit

  • Beck is fluent in French, which she used to comfort and gain the trust of a rape victim who was a native speaker. (SVU: "Recall")
