  • Why should the young niece of a senior official try to implicate Maigret in a case of sexual harassment? Maigret finds the answer has to do, not with the big-time criminal he's investigating, but with the quiet dentist across the street.moreless

    The very first episode of this revival of "Maigret" had to do with his efforts to catch a slippery criminal named Manuel Palmari, who was abruptly murdered ("The Patience Of Maigret"). This story, in Simenon's original version, also deals with Palmari (it was published a year earlier), who eludes capture at the end. As they'd already done the second story, the makers of the series had to invent a new villain for Maigret to be chasing - but that's all right, for this turns out to be a red herring, and Maigret's true quarry this time is revealed instead as a serial killer with affinities to Landru or Dr. Petiot. The gradual unveiling of utter horror behind the curtains of a quiet suburban street is very effective, with a certain comic relief found in Maigret's polite rebuffs to his supercilious superior.moreless
