Publisher's Summary

Maurice Denham is the famous French detective Maigret, and Michael Gough is his creator, Georges Simenon, in these five classic radio dramatisations.

Parisian detective Jules Maigret first appeared in print in 1931 and went on to feature in 76 novels and 28 short stories. An enduringly popular character, his adventures have been adapted on radio and television, most recently in ITV's series starring Rowan Atkinson.

In these radio plays, Maigret and Simenon look back over five of their most memorable cases. An anonymous letter sends Maigret back to the village where he grew up, Inspector Lapointe falls in love for the first time - and kills someone for the first time, and a model train seller tells Maigret that his wife is trying to poison him. Plus, how is the death of a Count linked to a collection of love letters? And can Maigret's carefully prepared plan prevent the latest in a string of serial killings?

First broadcast in 1976 on BBC Radio 4, the episodes included in this collection are:

  • 'Maigret Goes Home'
  • 'Maigret in Montmartre'
  • 'Maigret Has Scruples'
  • 'Maigret in Society'
  • 'Maigret Sets a Trap'

Great stuff!

Maurice Denham & Michael Gough are two of my favorite actors. To find them both in a detective series like Maigret is like icing on the cake. Check this out!

Excellent! Entertaining visual audio stories!

This has several stories and they are brought to life with excellent - artistic performances. You'll love it and only hate that it's not 10 times longer. Enjoy!!!

Quaint murders and un PC attitudes.

A bit slow, old-fashioned, sexists and racist, but otherwise charming. if you like Midsummer Murder I think you will like this.

Too truncated

Great stories,but these adaptations truncate the stories too much, especially if you know the story.
And I have to say Maurice Denham is not my ideal Maigret, good but not brilliant.

A bit silly

The stories are slight and there’s quite a lot of casual sexism. I was disappointed.
