Summary

Inspector Maigret is meant to be taking a holiday, but he can't resist following the development of his colleague Janvier's case in the papers - and playing a few tricks on the way.  

Standing at the window in the middle of the morning, vaguely observing the comings and goings in the street, he had a feeling that reminded him of certain days in his childhood, when his mother was still alive and he was off school because he had the flu or it was the end of term. It was the feeling of finding out what went on when he wasn't there.

One of the best of Simenon’s stories.

Perfect story, expertly presented from the start to the end.
Gareth is the best narrator, and Simenon beats them all, including Doyle.

One of the best

This story reveals Maigret at his most vulnerable in that he's on holiday and cannot interfere with a sensational murder case that has taken place in his absence. The story shares more interactions between Maigret and his wife. There were a few very funny moments in the story that caused me to laugh out loud. I am a great fan of Simenon and the Maigret stories. This is definitely one of the best in the series for me. It was very entertaining until the very end.
