    1. In the simply titled Maigret also published as Maigret Returns , former Detective Chief Inspector Maigret abandons his comfortable retirement in the Loire to return to Paris to extricate his nephew from a murder charge Philippe Lauer, the son of coddling Madame Maigret s sister, had prevailed on his uncle to obtain a position for him with the police But due to his na vet and blundering, Philippe finds himself charged with the murder of Pepito Palestrino, a scoundrel of a night club owner Maigret [...]




    2. As far back as 1934, Georges Simenon wrote a book about Inspector Maigret in retirement, forced to return to the scene of his travails when his nephew Philippe, also with the police, maladroitly becomes accused of a murder he did not commit Mme Maigret and her sister appeal to the retired detective to take matters in hand But as a retired police officer, Maigret has no status except his outsize reputation Maigret knew he was a thorn in everyone s side and that they would have liked to tell him t [...]


    3. This is a strange book, a sequel to the last one The Lock at Charenton Maigret is still retired but comes back to Paris to help out his nephew a cop , who is being framed for murder The usual suspects and types but the storyas a whole is not that interesting It almost seems like Simenon is planning to retire the whole Maigret series, an event which luckily does not come off There is, however a long hiatus in Maigret novels after this one.


    4. As we know at this time of Simenon s writing Maigret has retired whether it was his intention to pension him off full time I m glad he changed his mind eventually Here however the former detective is in a difficult position Called in by his sister in law to save his nephew from a murder charges, he still commands respect from his former colleagues but has no power and the criminals know he may still have a bark but he has no bite.The author therefore plays with this frustration and Maigret seems [...]


    5. First published in 1934, this installment shows that Simenon was getting tired of his MC, or perhaps just running out of ideas Without warning he has thrust Maigret into late middle age and retirement, underscoring his tiredness, his unwillingness to return to Paris from his country cottage and fishing, and his lack of influence in the Quai des Orfevres.This lack of influence doesn t stop him from haring off back to the city to rescue Phillipe , Mme Maigret s hapless nephew who has joined the fo [...]


    6. Although this book may be considered a novella at just 140 pages, it took me nearly two weeks to finish I couldn t fall into step with the reasoning of Maigret This book was recommended to me by a bookseller It is the first title of Georges Simenon I have read but is 19 in the Maigret series I originally gave it only one star, but removed my rating I feel I am missing the back story and rhythm of this writer.


    7. Wat minder Maigret, net gepensioneerd, helpt zijn neef die beschuldigd wordt van moord Het slot, de wijze waarop Maigret in een uitzichtloze situatie toch wint, is wel heel sterk.


    8. Although it later become the convention of the series to have Maigret s name in the title, the earlier ones didn t although the later English translations often included his name this is the first one that proclaimed itself as a Maigret novel with the simple title Maigret But I read it in an old Penguin edition, translated by Margaret Ludwig as Maigret Returns In the previous book in the series Maigret had retired to live in the country, but now he returns his nephew, a young police officer, has [...]


    9. The nephew of now retired Inspector Maigret is a police officer in Paris working in Maigret s former department The nephew is accused of killing a criminal during a stakeout and Maigret returns to Paris to prove his nephew is innocent Without authority to investigate, Maigret faces significant challenges in his attempts to clear his nephew.Not unsurprising given there are about 70 some books in this series, to find the next installment pulls Maigret from his French countryside retirement back to [...]


    10. The nineteenth Maigret these written between between 1931 and 1934 , and in this one Maigret has retired to the country and comes back to Paris when his nephew, a rookie policemen, is suspected of murder.I imagine that Simenon had decided to finish Maigret, just as Conan Doyle tried to do the same with Sherlock Holmes.The next one was not until, 1940, and in the end there were 75 This one is superb again, with the characters of the worlds of nightclubs and the underworld displayed in all their g [...]


    11. Maigret has recently retired to the country from the Paris police Soon his country life is interrupted by his nephew knocking at his door late at night The nephew followed Maigret into the police force, but has managed to make himself the main suspect in the murder of a bar owner It s up to Maigret to return to Paris to clear his nephew s name.Georges Simenon could reasonably lay claim to being the most prolific author of the 20th Century with over 500 novels and numerous short works to his cred [...]


    12. Great book Georges Simenon was really adept at describing the scenery and imagery of Maigret s world, and the psychology of his books is breathtaking In this book Simenon invents the recorded confession technique known from many modern crime dramas He builds the suspense with the touch of a master


    13. As you can tell from my previous reviews I love Simenon s books, especially his Maigret series This one however stands out brilliantly for me because Maigret is not his usual self assured self here and must really, really battle to solve the crime.


    14. Maigret has retired from the Paris police force and is living in a rural area When his nephew, a policeman, becomes a murder suspect, Maigret is forced to return to Paris to try to clear his nephew.





    15. Maigret comes out of retirement to help his nephew who works as a policeman in Paris He understands the thinking of this gang of criminals What he needs to do is get the evidence He seems really irritated and ready to go back home.


    16. Doveva essere l ultimo e lo fu, seppure solo per cinque anni Per suggellare le avventure del suo ormai ingombrante personaggio, Simenon sceglie il titolo eponimo e immagina Maigret gi in pensione e impegnato soprattutto ad andare a pesca in quel di Meung, sulle rive della Loira Una notte, il tranquillo tran tran viene sconvolto dal nipote giovane poliziotto a Parigi, accusato di aver ucciso il padrone un prestanome, come si scoprir ben presto del locale che era incaricato di sorvegliare Di malav [...]


    17. When Margaret Atwood said in the New York Times column By the Book that one of the books she was reading was Georges Simenon s Maigret, I decided to take this as a tip to read a good book Soon I was reading about the detective she called gritty I had read Holmes, Poirot, Marple, and Nero Wolfe, but I had never heard of Maigret This 1934 novel is one of dozens of novels and short stories built around the character Maybe he is gritty, but I would likely call his shrewd, intuitive, and a seeker of [...]


    18. Review by ireadnovels.wordpressRetired Inspector Maigret s, nephew Philippe has travelled from Paris to see his Uncle Maigret Philippe knocks on his door in the middle of the night Philippe is in big trouble and needs his Uncle to help him Philippe explains to his Uncle Maigret that he was hiding out in the toilets of a club until all the customers had left, when he heard gunshot and finds Pepito who works in the club dead Philippe then did something so stupid that he is sure that he will get ar [...]


    19. Maigret is like my comfy blanket It always soothes me and never disappoints I loved the situation in Maigret where Maigret was an outsider looking in at the police procedure As always Simenon creates a wonderfully dark atmosphere which is only punctured by the arrival of his sister in law The prose is crisp and all aspiring writers should be forced to read several Simenons I would have given it five stars but for the ending which I felt was a little pat even though the face off at the end was de [...]


    20. Maigret is retired already his nephew awakens him at his country cottage in the middle of the night to extricate him from a junior mistake The story is interesting mainly because Maigret is now an outsider and is forced to improvise in order to save his nephew from prison.As much as I love Simenon and the new translations from Penguin, I m finding that the series provides diminishing returns Still I enjoy the atmosphere of Paris in the 1930s, the rather bleak insight into everyday life that the [...]


    21. Questa volta Maigret, in pensione, costretto a rientrare a Parigi per dare aiuto al nipote Philippe, entrato in polizia grazie allo zio e nei guai perch ingiustamente accusato di omicidio L ex commissario, grazie anche all aiuto dei suoi vecchi colleghi, riesce a venirne fuori con un colpo di mano Molto interessanti le descrizioni degli ambienti e dei personaggi della criminalit parigina che animano la vicenda ed i giochi di ruolo con gli ex colleghi poliziotti.


    22. About halfway through I have since finished nothing to change in my comment Delighted with Simenon s pen The pace is masterfully controlled even when it seems to linger, it is always to effect I have seen many TV films where Bruno Cremer plays Maigret Now that I am reading the original book version of one of them the first in the series , I have even admiration for the accuracy with which Cremer conveys the specific character of the inspector.


    23. A retired to the countryside Maigret returns to Paris to extricate his nephew from the charge of murder But he is no longer chief inspector, and has little clout and few real friends on the Police Judiciare But he knows his way around Paris, and working from a hotel he is soon smoking his pipe, drinking a libation, and on the path of a well alibied leader of a drug ring.


    24. The most plainly titled Maigret novel is one of the most unusual and original Maigret has retired, so he is working without official backing Everything seems to go wrong for him as he tangles with a set of nasty gangsters who have framed his nephew for murder A remarkable novel.
