  • Maigret is once again uneasily teamed with the perpetually unlucky and unhappy Inspector Lognon and arranges for his colleague to get the credit for solving a tricky case.

    7.5
    Why should a small-time diamond broker with big money and marital problems telephone Maigret, a man he never knew, before blowing his brains out? And why should he revile the Inspector with the same crude insults once used by a notorious gangster now dead? This adaptation of a Simenon short story poses a neat problem, but, typically, the focus is less on the plot than on the edgy, awkward relationship between Maigret and his permanently bad-tempered and hard-done-by colleague, Lognon. Henry Oscar had made a great success of this role in a one-off adaptation of a Simenon story done by the BBC in 1959, and returned to it for this series. The difficult friendship between Maigret and this meticulous, thorny officer is depicted movingly and with considerable skill, making Maigret's gesture in allowing Lognon to make the collar at the end a typical example of Le Patron's understated kindness.moreless
