  • An anonymous letter informs Maigret that a crime will occur in the village where he grew up, to which he has not returned for many years.

    The extraordinary terrain of the Hungarian puszta doubles for rural France in this episode, just as Budapest doubled for Paris in other shows. Here, the mysterious death of the Comtesse de Saint-Fiacre at early-morning mass has a personal effect on Maigret, whose late father, we learn, was a steward to the then-rich aristocratic family. Now, he finds the family has fallen on hard times, and learns that they never were the grand and glorious people he thought them as a boy. Michael Gambon's quality of natural stillness, which made him such an effective Maigret, is extremely well-used here, and the very last scene, where Maigret silently pays homage at the grave of his beloved and long-dead father, is very moving.moreless
