A corpse is dropped off at 1 AM bang in the centre of Paris Strangely for the times his jacket doesn't match the rest of his rather elegant ensemble and the stab wounds don't match the holes in his clothes Maigret begins to obsess about itA particularly enjoyable casenot least because it again throws light on his home life how he works and his relationship with Madame Maigret Apparently when a case is not going at all well Maigret will sometimes throw a sickie and stay home for a day or two reading Dumas and sipping Madame's herbal tea This doesn't mean he's not working oh no Les enfants drop by or phone in with reports while the Inspector exercises his little grey cells from the comfort of his armchair and slippers Madame babies him plying him with aspirins and the occasional hot toddy if he's a good boy and drinks his infusions He does absolutely horrify her by speaking by phone with the examining magistrate in the same bland and placid voice that reduces her to tears when he uses it with her because it's so out of character Maigret knows one of the cardinal rules of hierarchy if you're careful you can be so polite it's insulting and yet leave nothing for your adversary to take hold ofOnce the corpse was identified I enjoyed watching him slip into the victim's home and life like a hermit crab into a new shell I love books I can snuggle down into; Simenon may not be a cosy author but by jove he can write The sights the sounds the smells of Paris are all here The working techniues of the Paris police of the time were fascinating; it made me wonder if American forensics of the time thought of putting a victim's clothes in a paper bag and beating it with a stick to extract the dust for analysisDelicieux comme toujours

epub Ý Maigret et son mort ð Georges Simenon

Maigret through the Paris streets towards a man out of his depth amid a network of merciless criminals Listening Length 5 hours and 7 minutes I love the atmosphere in which and the pace at which the police used to work back then no definite schedule but enough time for an apéritif at noon and a good lunch at a small bistro with no mobile phones or computers at their disposal Makes me very nostalgic
