    1 thought on “Maigret's Failure”

    1. Maigret seems out of his stride in this case. Already harangued by the press about the inability to find a visiting middle aged tourist from England he has the unfortunate task of meeting a lad from his school.Where once he was a boy for ridicule he has risen to a successful businessman in the meat trade.The son of the village butcher has made his money at the expense of others often destroying people and leaving them financially bankrupt and seeking suicide as a way out. Fumal has even wormed h [...]

    2. I adore these fabulous 1950's era French mysteries - Simenon is a subtle and fabulous stylist and Maigret is a really masterful creation - what I think is amazing is the detail that he fills these novels with but - compared to our contemporary mystery offerings - many of these books are under 200-pages but have fabulous plots and supple psychological insights! Camilleri seems to me to be a true to the marvellous Simenon!

    3. When a well known business man visits Maigret worried about death threats, Maigret allows the past to cloud his judgment.

    4. After a break from Simenon, suddenly reading so many Creasy novels, comparing them fully escapes me for now. Maigret seems confused and distraught, but Gideon is always, almost always, on top of his game. Psychologically, Maigret is more realistic, and Simenon’s plots stay closer to the earth, but Gideon’s life is more fun.

    5. Es la primera historia que leo de Simenon y me gusto. Es interesante ver que este detective policiaco, Maigret, no es como Poirot o Sherlock, es un detective un poco más realista que se enfoca en la psicologia de los sospechosos y no tanto en el espacio donde ocurrieron los hechos. La historia que nos cuenta esta novela es sobre la desaparición de una mujer Britanica y las amenzas que le llegan a un comerciante importante de Francia. Solo dire esto ya que es mejor leeer un libro sin saber much [...]

    6. I really enjoyed this. It was not quite the mystery I was expecting - there was far less emphasis on the investigation and the clues and so on. I'm not sure if that's usual with this series, since this is the first I've read, but I will learn, since I enjoyed it enough that I will look into getting hold of the others. I was a little frustrated by the ending - it wasn't clear to me how Maigret had solved it (though the events at the end of the book meant that anyone could have drawn the correct c [...]

    7. I have given this book 4 stars despite the fact that the plot is a bit weak and the ending definitely unsatisfactory.Simenon was such a great writer that even his not so good books are difficult to put down. The victim in this book hardly appears while alive but the reader will detest him so much that he will readily understand why anyone would want to kill him. Even Maigret himself feels this.All the characters and locations are marvelously described. Brilliant !!I thoroughly enjoyed it as I do [...]

    8. Another interesting Maigret adventure. Simenon was a master of word economy, the story is quick and to-the-point. I always find that Simenon's style doesn't ever seem dated; though this book was written in 1956, it reads like current fiction. For me, Simenon ranks quite high in the pantheon of mystery writers.

    9. "Maigret never liked him, even when they were both kids in Saint-Fiacre. So when Fumal turns up demanding protection from death threats it is without much enthusiasm that the Superintendent undertakes his work. Never mind. The ""meat king"" ends up dead and there isn't a soul who doesn't secretly gloat. So it goes."

    10. I admit it, these Maigret books are addictive What can I say? You either love them or Well, you know.

    11. The death of an acquaintance from his past, now wealthy, but just as contemptible, throws Maigret just a little off his game.
