In Law & Order: SVU’s two-hour season opener Sergeant Benson (Mariska Hargitay, far left, with Kelli Giddish) has to stop a killer from a prestigious NYC family before he commits even more grisly crimes.

Comparisons to The Jinx’s Robert Durst are to be expected. “The premiere is creepier than usual,” executive producer Warren Leight promises. “It’s not the usual stuff.”
