We'd need a more precise description, but most likely you're thinking of a
dental 's' sound; X-SAMPA and JXS [s_d]. In IPA, it's [s] with a diacritic
below looking like an '[' tilted 90 degrees clockwise.
It's the sound of Swedish /s/. IIRC Russian also has it, and Tamil even
contrasts it with an alveolar (English-style) [s].
