  • Could the uxorious Inspector Maigret once have formed rather too close a friendship with the wife of a burglar? His assistants are agog as this foxy lady re-enters his life unexpectedly.moreless

    Although not quite as good as the BBC's adaptation of the same story for their series in 1960 (when the burglar's devious wife was played in great style by Andree Melly), this was a pretty enjoyable episode, and the little hints (never confirmed) that, once upon a time, the young Maigret had been smitten with the cunning vixen are nicely understated. The BBC version made very little of these intriguing possibilities, although it did mention that Maigret's friendship with the burglar's wife had been sealed when, as a young copper, he had imperturbably continued to arrest her even when she had removed all her clothing. In this version, Gambon's poker face is most amusingly employed; there are some things it is better not to know.moreless
