Summary

A visit from the tall, thin woman he arrested many years ago - now married to a hapless burglar - leads Maigret on a tortuous investigation in which he struggles with a formidable suspect.

'When he had set them to work, Maigret had had a merry, almost fierce glint in his eye. He had set them loose on the house like a pack of hounds on the trail of a scent, encouraging them not with his voice, but by his whole attitude...would events have played out in the same manner, if the man from Rue de la Ferme hadn't been a heavyweight like him, both physically and psychologically?'

This novel has been published in previous translations as Maigret and the Burglar's Wife.

A worthwhile listen

A very clever story. Maigret at his worst and his best. Lots of atmosphere, very good supporting characters. A body found by a burglar leads Maigret into an investigation where he encounters very unpleasant wealthy individuals and receives support from a much nicer, much poorer and possibly more moral person. Justice is served.
