A raid is planned and executed in the Rue du Roi-de-Sicile district, and at the Hôtel du Lion d'Or, a Czech woman, Maria, is found in labor. But for me, this was a treat. Yes, I saw a gentleman. And then he went home, ate his supper, and waited for the second plan to unfold. And I'd like to place an advert in the personal columns.
Colombani has brought in a sofa from the Goderville farmhouse. Maigret goes to visit Nine Rochain, hiding out in Corbeil, and while there the last member of the gang, Serge Madok, is arrested. Up the stairs, second floor. He is a film producer. Would you mind taking them to Room 270? Meanwhile, in Paris, Maigret is hooked on another mysterious case. A nervous man, clearly in some kind of lethal danger, attempted to get in contact with him, but vanished before Maigret could physically meet him.
Oh, it's bitter, isn't it? In the Northwest of France, a few hours driving from Paris, entire families of farmers are brutally slaughtered and their houses robbed. Six months ago he was a foreman on the shop floor at Citroen. All right, your dead man is speaking to me at last, Maigret. I'm going to open him up and see what he last ate. How can I give you what I don't have? I've been inside eight out of the last ten years, Maigret.
You're not Chief Inspector Maigret. Will you all step back, please? He posted it after he make a phonecall. After this man was shot in the street? Check the fences, see if anything connects to the murder victims, and we need detectives on every train travelling to Le Havre. My name won't mean anything to you, but they're going to kill me. He has all my men are at his disposal. He's not known to us. Will you keep the bistro on? Dirty cars complete the image, and even the camera-work reminds of the film-noir of the 1940's and '50's.
This one's got under his skin. Judge Comeliau, good to meet you. And on the day he died? Well, they weren't after money. Are people going to recognise him from this? Janvier, take a man and do nothing else. The story was not bad, but being too simple and predictable was the biggest let down. Even though we are treated to some background detail that those who have read the original novels will find pleasing as for example Maigret's love of a hot coal fire to roast himself before in order to think a case through , too many things were ever so slightly wrong. Congratulations to the team, the script and everyone else.
I've seen blood on their clothes. Every setting was so carefully set and in so much detail, that I caught myself many times watching the background objects than the action itself. No, because of his shirt. A judicious use of sound stages would have served the purpose much better. I saw the cream-and-blue car. Did you enjoy the show? No doubt ladies delighted at their fashions, and men felt the part in their suits. It was a cream and blue Citroen with a Paris registration.
A little man placing little bets for little winnings. He brings down retribution like a hammer upon the sinful. Because you'll look out of place in a little bistro on the Saint-Sulpice. Then why hasn't his wife reported him missing? She was sort of their queen bee. I think it's from him. I felt asleep 4 times in the first 30 minutes.
That you for coming all the way from Goderville. From the testimony of the proprieter, it becomes clear that she is one of the band of Czechs who had brutally committed murder and robbery on farms in the north, the Picardy killers. Have you got the dope? Find the ticket - and kill anyone who's there. He tries again from various cafés, till finally the calls stop. In the old city with the limited resources to stop or solve the crimes compared to the present world, the brainpower comes into effect. On this occasion, a farmhand was also killed. A little bistro, run by a husband and wife near where I live.
