Maigret: Set 8

Product Description

MAIGRET: SET 8
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 43: TO ANY LENGTHS
A note left in a cafe warns of the coming death of a fortune-teller. Despite precautions, the murder happens. In July's heat, with the Tour de France reaching its climax, Maigret gets caught up in an investigation where nothing makes sense.

EPISODE 44: MAIGRET'S FAILURE
A powerful businessman complains of having received menacing letters and asks Maigret for protection. Maigret knew him when he was a boy and finds him just as unpleasant as he remembered. Reluctantly, he takes on the case.

EPISODE 45: MAIGRET'S BOYHOOD FRIEND
Maigret's long-lost school chum bumps into him in the street and asks for help. His mistress has just been murdered in her own apartment. The man was there at the time and claims he saw nothing, even though he was hiding in the closet!

EPISODE 46: MAIGRET HAS SCRUPLES
A mild-mannered man visits Maigret, accusing his wife of wanting to poison him. Maigret then gets a visit from the man's wife, who accuses him of being neurotic. Is Maigret watching a domestic spat unfold, or is it a murder in the making?

EPISODE 47: LITTLE PIGS WITHOUT A TAIL
When the husband of a young woman goes missing, she enlists the services of Maigret. The investigation turns into a game between him and the woman as to who will find the first clue, and who will inform the other about what.

EPISODE 48: MAIGRET AND THE TRAMP
Two bargemen pull a gravely wounded vagrant out of the Seine River. One of the men states that he noticed a red Peugeot on the quay shortly before the accident. Maigret tracks down the car only to find that the two occupants are innocent.
