Summary

Leaning on the banisters, Madame Maigret watched her husband going heavily downstairs.... What the newspapers didn't know was how much energy he put into trying to understand, how much he concentrated during certain investigations. It was as if he identified with the people he was hunting and suffered the same torments as they did.

A young man is found dead, clutching his tape recorder, just streets away from Maigret's home, leading the inspector on a disturbing trail into the mind of a killer.

Riveting and devastating

Simeon’s darkest, most psychologically astute Maigret novel. It left me cold inside with the realization that the Killer could be any of us, ostensibly, ‘normal’, individuals. Nevertheless, l strongly recommend it to anyone who is interested in who each of us is, and how our darkest impulses can eventually rule our very existence.
