I love Maigret and I love the genre so it's a biased review from me! Beautifully crafted and suspenseful. I could have done with the story being a little more rounded, it did seem to tie up relatively quickly for a Maigret and I felt a couple of the minor characters could have been brought into play a bit more; Simenon is so good at building character layer by layer, and this could have been developed a bit more but maybe that's because I just want to read more Maigret!
