onceto the centre and restored to overseeing his department on the Quai des Orf vres As Peter Foord said This is one of the most satisfying of the Maigret novels as it has many aspects of his approach to an investigationMaigret is the star, driven by his methods, that others within the book recognise and which devoted fans adore He doesn t do all the leg work and relies on colleagues, comically seen when Lucas follows a suspect on foot while Maigret trundles along in a taxi Janvier is also sent to various places to seek out information and observe comings and goings Yet it is the Chief Inspector that orchestrates all the activity from the start when a man keeps phoning him saying he is being followed and his life is in danger Maigret is certain it isn t a hoax, and the urgency is to find him before his persuers isolate him The detective isn t surprised when a body turns out to be this frightened man and the reader is engaged as the victim becomes known as Maigret s dead man.Written just after the World War 2, the Paris we see is full of illegal foreigners, with designated areas which the people by and large keep within Following the pattern of the dead man s last movements Maigret is able to gainknowledge of him and ultimately find out who is was The rest is an investigation into why he was killed and what he knew that demanded some criminals kill him before he shared what he knew with Maigret.There is a raid of Paris that must have been reminiscent of round ups in wartime Paris and demonstrates the power of the Police, their authority and scope when they chose to act.The book has lighter moments with Madame Maigret both nursing her husband with a heavy cold during the investigation and tiptoeing about their apartment when she thought Maigret was sleeping.There is a brutality here that Maigret recognises and a criminal class that bearly values life However, as the case nears its conclusion we see a compassionate detective towards those he arrests and for his own men in the face of potential danger He even worries for anyone likely to be caught up in any arrest Since the crooks will know the game is up, and have nothing to lose in a gun battle or the death of innocent bystanders.A complete novel that shows Georges Simenon hasto say about his creation Maigret and has a new found liberation to write freely and with enjoyment about a detective who is an icon of the 20th century.To new readers and established fans this is a must read as it is the very essence of Maigret Dear old Maigret After a fortnight of particularly bad reading choices, I scored a day off What better than to flop in bed with le patron and the boys A corpse is dropped off at 1 AM, bang in the centre of Paris Strangely for the times, his jacket doesn t match the rest of his rather elegant ensemble, and the stab wounds don t match the holes in his clothes Maigret begins to obsess about it.A particularly enjoyable case,not least because it again throws light on his home life, how he works Dear old Maigret After a fortnight of particularly bad reading choices, I scored a day off What better than to flop in bed with le patron and the boys A corpse is dropped off at 1 AM, bang in the centre of Paris Strangely for the times, his jacket doesn t match the rest of his rather elegant ensemble, and the stab wounds don t match the holes in his clothes Maigret begins to obsess about it.A particularly enjoyable case,not least because it again throws light on his home life, how he works and his relationship with Madame Maigret Apparently when a case is not going at all well Maigret will sometimes throw a sickie and stay home for a day or two, reading Dumas and sipping Madame s herbal tea This doesn t mean he s not working, oh no Les enfants drop by or phone in with reports, while the Inspector exercises his little grey cells from the comfort of his armchair and slippers Madame babies him, plying him with aspirins and the occasional hot toddy, if he s a good boy and drinks his infusions He does absolutely horrify her by speaking by phone with the examining magistrate, in the same bland and placid voice that reduces her to tears when he uses it with her because it s so out of character Maigret knows one of the cardinal rules of hierarchy if you re careful, you can be so polite it s insulting, and yet leave nothing for your adversary to take hold of.Once the corpse was identified, I enjoyed watching him slip into the victim s home and life like a hermit crab into a new shell I love books I can snuggle down into Simenon may not be a cosy author, but by jove he can write The sights, the sounds, the smells of Paris are all here The working techniques of the Paris police of the time were fascinating it made me wonder if American forensics of the time thought of putting a victim s clothes in a paper bag and beating it with a stick to extract the dust for analysis Delicieux, comme toujours Synopsis blurb..That shoeless foot

It was Maigret who retrieved the other shoe, which lay by the kerb six or seven metres away A series of strange phone calls leads Inspector Maigret through the Paris streets towards a man out of his depth amid a network of merciless criminals My takeMaigret s Dead Man was my first taste of prolific Belgian author, Georges Simenon s Inspector Maigret in what was his 29th case It was enjoyable, not least because of its overall length and is hopefully not my last encounter with the Parisian detective.An unidentified man has been murdered on the streets, a man who had been phoning Maigret throughout the afternoon of his death Maigret directing operations has to identify the man and discover his killer, all while placating or ignoring the magistrate with overall responsibility for the case.Quite the challenge, but slowly Maigret builds up a portrait of the man A careful analysis of his clothing, determining what work he may have performed the contents of his stomach informing his social status and the type of establishments which he might frequent and enjoy his meals We have a few underlings ready to do Maigret s bidding without question, phone here, stake out there, some door knocking elsewhere Not especially fast paced, but not pedestrian either, just a really enjoyable read Maigret logically gathering information, turning supposition and guesswork into fact.We identify the victim, we get a break in the case, again after some patient police work, cause some panic in the ranks of those responsible and after a fewmini adventures close out the case I doubt I m spoiling this for anyone by disclosing this Plenty of applied logic, a bit of action, a surprising bit of graphic detail when interrogating a suspect and a satisfactory conclusion Where s Simenon and his main man been all my reading life 4.5 from 5Originally published in 1948, Penguin Classics reissued this one last year Part of a project to bring all 75 Maigret s give or take to a modern readership.Read
