Could be either the linkage has come loose or some portion of the linkage is broken. Only way to find out is to remove the inside door panel and take a peek. You'll need a door tool to properly pop loose the push-in connectors that hold the panel to the door.

Its a small peice of plastic that is causing your problem. It keeps the rod connected between the handle and lock. You'll need to remove the panel and inspect to see if it just came off or you need a new one. I've seen them slip off and still be useable. If you have manual windows you can use an old kitchen fork to remove your window crank, just bend two of the center forks away. It can also be used to pop loose the panel .
