I do find it interesting that fairly regularly Maigret makes executive decisions on who he is going to arrest for all the murder and mayhem. He has a very definite inner moral compass and he isn't afraid to use it in doling out justice! ( )

** spoiler alert ** Nel suo personale giro di Francia, il girovago Maigret si spinge sempre più a sud: eccolo muoversi tra Antibes e Cannes, dove è stato spedito per indagare (o forse in primo luogo per troncare e sopire) le modalità della morte di William Brown, un ricco australiano che si sospetta fosse collegato ai servizi segreti. Ben presto il commissario scopre che le circostanze sono un po’ diverse, tanto che non solo l’uomo vive in una villa modesta con due donne mediocri, ma si avventura sovente nell’infima taverna del titolo sito nella zona portuale di Cannes: è qui, tra la vecchia e sfatta Jaja e la giovane prostituta Sylvie che sta la chiave del mistero di un omicidio lontano dalle spiegazioni più ovvie. Il defunto somiglia fisicamente a Maigret, il che gli offre da parte dell’investigatore una simpatia in un certo modo accresciuta dalle sue scelte di vita specie in confronto all’impeccabile – almeno all’apparenza – figlio Harry che ne ha ereditato il ruolo nella florida azienda di famiglia. Simenon tesse con abilità una vicenda che pare avviarsi come un intrigo internazionale e invece si rivela essere un delitto di passione, ma alcune figure restano abbozzate (Gina e la madre) mentre risulta eccessivo lo spazio dato alle scene ambientate nel retrobottega del Liberty Bar: è vero che l’attenzione dello scrittore è concentrata soprattutto nella descrizione del degrado nonché della vitalità che vi si può lo stesso trovare, ma il peso sullo smilzo numero di pagine è comunque sovradimensionato. All’opposto, è indovinato il ritratto ai limiti della macchietta dell’azzimato ispettore rivierasco Boutigues, peraltro ulteriore tassello di quella Costa Azzurra rappresentata come abitata da ricchi e/o vanesi che la percorrono quasi fossero in una bolla staccata dal reale. Il fastidio fisico provato da Maigret per il sole, il caldo o i colori si traduce in una rappresentazione critica – subito torna alla memoria ‘Senza via di scampo’ - che rende ancora più malmostoso il personaggio.

MAIGRET ON THE RIVIERA (1940) by Georges Simenon is a great example of logical thinking, exploring the back lanes, and the power of letting others do the talking. When a man dies on his front step, the two women he lives with panic. That he has been stabbed is obvious, where the stabbing occurred is not so forth coming. The man drove himself back from town. Was he stabbed in town, during the drive or on his porch?
And what of the missing days that occur every month, and which just happened prior to his return home.
This is an interesting little puzzle, as are all Simenon's Maigret novels. If you get a chance you might amuse yourself with this or any of the other hundred or so stories out there. ( )

First read as "Maigret on the Riviera" (Sainsbury translation) ( )

In comparison to the "Yellow Dog" and "The Fortuneteller", I liked this one much better, for Maigret was more involved, he was more active and the other characters were much more interesting and real. I find that so many of Simenon's characters are just ugly, cold, uncaring, and stiff.

Maigret is called to Antibes because man is found stabbed and dead on his doorstep and it needs to be handled in a "tactful" manner.... His mistress & her mother at first do nothing because they believe that he was in his usual monthly drunken binge state.....

Following the man's usual routine, Maigret finds that the man not only has another Mistress, but in unveiling the mystery has a wife & three sons on a very flush sheep ranch in Australia. He had been disowned by his family for failing to return home and was in the process of suing them.....

It also turns out that the man may have had political "connections", but the book never went in to that aspect of the dead man's past.

The book was a fast & easy read and it held my interest. I just ordered the series w/ Jean Gabin for the Library's DVD collection, so we'll see how those are..... ( )
