Summary

Maigret would have found it difficult to formulate an opinion of him. Intelligent, yes, certainly, and highly so, as far as one could tell from what lay beneath some of his utterances. Yet alongside that, there was a naive, rather childish side to him.

Maigret is savouring a beautiful spring morning in Paris when an aspiring film-maker draws his attention to a much less inspiring scene, one where ever-changing loyalties can have tragic consequences.

Perfect

Simenon's writing is so understated and efficient, he conjures up the world perfectly and never wastes your time! It's really superb.

Gareth Armstrong is a master too. His range (and depth) of voices is superhuman. Can't recommend the reissued series enough.

A good take, well told

A good story and a good narrator made this a worthwhile listen. The narrator introduced clear inflections, which made it easy to know who was speaking. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Too Smart

A regular good, old Maigret adventure. The villain is easy to pick out, but clever story.
