Maigret: Set 1

Product Description

MAIGRET: SET 1
Sporting his pipe that seems a nod to Sherlock Holmes, the pragmatic, reserved and refined Maigret investigates murders in his singular unhurried manner and inevitably discovers the truth. To crack his cases he peels back the veneer of seemingly idyllic villages and neighborhoods, exposing the criminals who lurk in all levels of society. Against a backdrop of 1950s Paris and the surrounding French countryside, these original feature-length films pay homage to one of the most brilliant detective minds of the twentieth century.

EPISODE 1 - MAIGRET IN MONTMARTRE
A helpful Montmartre stripper tips off the police that she's overheard some customers plotting a murder, but when everybody shrugs things off, she's the one who turns up dead. Maigret starts nosing around to see who the stripper's off-the-clock actual boyfriend is.

EPISODE 2 - MAIGRET AND THE BURGLAR'S WIFE
Tough luck for a hard-working burglar instead of a safe, his break-in lands him next to a female corpse! Time for his ex-prostitute wife to call on her old arresting officer, Inspector Maigret. But when he arrives, where's the corpse?

EPISODE 3 - MAIGRET AND THE FLEMISH SHOP
When a demanding single mom disappears after leaving her lover's shop on the Belgian border, Maigret is unofficially called in - by her lover's family. And they, of course, seem to be the top suspects in the case. Maigret must disprove their alibi or find an explanation.

EPISODE 4 - MAIGRET AND THE JUDGE
On assignment in the provinces, Maigret acts on a tip to find a distinguished judge dragging a corpse out of his house, presumably to dump in the sea. Bad enough, but now he's also got a lead to decades-old previously undiscovered murder.

EPISODE 5 - MAIGRET AND THE HEADLESS CORPSE
At a small caf_ near the canal where a headless body has been found, Maigret is intrigued by the reticent proprietress and tries to draw her out. Could the corpse could be her husband, who's supposedly away on a business trip?

EPISODE 6 - MAIGRET AT THE CROSSROADS
After a suspect shrugs off a lengthy interrogation, Maigret arrives at a three-house crossroads in the country to solve the case of an anonymous corpse found in a car in the wrong garage. But then a late arrival is shot right in front of his eyes!
