  • Maigret returns to the place of his birth but is unable to prevent a murder taking place during early-morning Mass at the local church.

    7.0
    When Maigret was a boy, he idolised the beautiful Countess de Saint-Fiacre, the young woman who presided over the great house in the village where he was born. But now, when he returns to this village for the first time in many years, he finds the Countess an ageing beauty with a sordid life and a dwindling fortune, and when she is murdered, his investigations shatter whatever glamorous image the aristocratic family once had in his eyes. This story was arguably done better in the 1992 series with Michael Gambon, but nonetheless the strong plot holds our attention, and Rupert Davies's quiet, polite insistence on getting to the unpalatable truth is, as always, impressive.moreless
