A tutta prima aveva creduto che fosse un po' svitata. Ora si chiedeva se quella esuberanza non fosse dovuta al fatto che lei recitava, non solo per ingannarlo, non solo per nascondergli qualcosa, ma per il puro piacere di interpretare un ruolo. «Si diverte molto, signorina Clément?». «Mi diverto sempre, commissario». Questa volta lo guardò con tutto il suo ritrovato candor ...more

I don't really know this detective series, although I'm aware it's quite famous. It took me two goes to get into it. The first time round, I was confused by the way the narrative meanders around a bit before getting to the point of the story. Or maybe it's that I was expected to know who the main characters were already. Once I'd gotten far enough in to figure out what was going on, I went back and re-read from the beginning, and this time I could really appreciate the story-telling, the atmosph ...more
The title of this book is often translated as Maigret Takes a Room.

Inspector Maigret is alone and bored. Mme Maigret is out of Paris tending her convalescing sister, nothing exciting is happening at work, and he is spending an evening stopping at a bar, going to a movie, wandering the streets, and avoiding going home. Things change suddenly when one of his men is shot. Taking over the assignment of the injured man, Maigret moves into the lodgings where a robbery has occurred, outside of which th
Another very atmospheric tale from the master. As usual Maigret hangs around with the people involved, drinks and eats with them, watches them, talks to them, listens to them, gets to know them and gradually works out what's gone on. While this is happening, the reader is right in Maigret's head.

For me, with these stories, the journey is more important than the destination. Top notch! I don't think this man could have written a bad book if he tried.
another brain teaser whodunit starring Maigret.he is loved but not very lovable.
he does bring out his compassion at the end.
It has always amazed me at the amount of alcoholic beverage he consumes in one little book and the great variety of said beverages.

Turns out I've read it before. But like an old Perry Mason episode, I couldn't remember whodunit. This is the Maigret where at one point his bistro breakfast is a glass of white wine, a menu I tried a few months ago, although I added a croissant.
Per la prima volta mi leggo un Simenon e conosco il commissario Maigret con un libro comprato usato un paio di anni fa e rimasto lì a prendere polvere sullo scaffale. E mi chiedo perché non l'ho letto prima.
Probabilmente non ci sono attinenze letterarie e sicuramente non ce ne sono geografiche, ma questo romanzo mi ha portato alla mente i mila e mila gialli di Agatha Christie letti da ragazzina. Sarà la presenza di un protagonista investigatore che interroga, pensa, ragiona, sarà il periodo sto

Maigret vive per una settimana circa da un'affittacamere e improvvisamente gli abitanti della pensione si disvelano nella loro tristezza, monotonia, follia. As usual, non è importante chi uccide chi ma il perchè.La malinconia, il grigiore, la piega che può prendere una vita. I colori come al solito sono netti. Il giallo sbiadito del vino bianco e la fuliggine del quartiere. Grande Maigret, da leggere.
Concha Marcos
Un Inspector Maigret mas humano que nunca que nos deleita con los dialogos que mantiene con cada uno de los personajes y donde lo mas importante es descubrir la verdad de cada uno y no el final.
Entretenido libro de Maigret. Aquí Simenon desarrolla toda su habilidad para describir un misterio en una pensión de Paris.

Altogether, about 550 million copies of his works have been printed.

He is best known, however, for his 75
