when i haveI have an opportunity I liked this better than many of the noirmystery genre and happily mark it 4 stars Simenon was ahead of his time The psychological approach is similar to today s crime novels I like Maigret he s ust a clever detective solving crimes The writing is crisp the book is short No pyrotechnics very little soap opera about the detective Boisson cette fois un blanc Vichy I have read so many of Georges Simenon s Maigret mysteries and always with such avidity that I would deeply regret getting to the end of his bibliography Maigret Sets a Trap 1955 is about a serial killer who stabs plump women in Montmartre with a pen knife and slashes their clothing Even when the Superintendent finds a suspect he is dismayed to discover that yet another woman has been killed It is then that we see Maigret at his most impenetrable We never really get into his mind in any of the stories We as it were stand next to him and watch his mind and instincts at work When the crimes are solved we are surprised because we were not privy to his thinking In fact at the end of Maigret Sets a Trap we hear his monologue as he is not uite willing to admit that his prime suspect was not in fact the killer How he solves the case is Dramatisation with Denholm ElliottWL The Man Who Watched Trains Go By3 Maigret in Society3 The Blue RoomWL My Friend Maigret Maigret 313 The Saint Fiacre Affair3 Maigret in Montmartre3 Maigret Has Scruples3 Maigret Bides His Time3 Striptease3 Maigret Sets A Trap.

So the British have made another stab at adapting Simenon s often literary but mostly straightforward Maigret whodunnit s in to a TV series via the highly unlikely interpretation of the contemplative and than probably rotund detective by Mr Bean The first episode Rising Above The Influence: A True Story about Alcohol, Drugs, and Recovery just happened to be a book I hadn t read yet and so as in most cases I choose the source material as a first exploration of the work and delay my televisual gratification I shall remember you all my life because never before in my career has a case bothered me so much taken so much out of meMaigret Sets a Trap is something of an unusual Maigret and as such an unusual choice for an introductory episode There s no sitting and contemplating the crime and the psychological aspects of the criminal over countless meals and drinks in Parisian bars here instead you get an internal self analysis of Maigret himself as he doubts his abilities as a detective and specifically his decision making in the case of the 18th Arrondissement slasher and his last ditch attempt to draw the killer out For fans of the detective and the books he is featured in this would be a welcome addition much like the meta fictional Maigret s Memoirs but coming to this story first would surely give you the wrong idea about the series not to mention the fact that TV cannot do internal self analysis and doubtustice so what were they thinking This book along with Seferis Complete Poems were two of the five books I took with me to London books I wasn t able to startLet s not forget that books are like holidays and Conjure In African American Society journeys They take you on aourney they take you to different countries foreign placesAnd as Kazantzakis says in his book England A travel Womens Political Activism in Palestine journal that I finished today Every new soil we step on can and should be an occasion for our souls to expandAnd since I had the luxury ofourneying with my body to museums to galleries and sightseeing in London I was only reading my book before going to bed and a little bit on the busThe most I can read in a day when I m on holidays is 30 pages and
*in my 14 days in London I read or less 400 pages so or less 30 pages *my 14 days in London I read or less 400 pages so or less 30 pages day So for Maigret and Seferis of course I didn t have timeThose of you who
Know Me A Little Bitme a little bit know that Rowan Atkinson is my favourite actor who in addition to being a slapstick Mr Bean he also created the witty BlackadderSo hearing that he was going to play the French detective Maigret by Belgian writer Simenon in a TV series it was a normal reaction for me to get excited And although detective books are not my cup of tea for Maigret I made an exception And of course I started with those books that had Atkinson on the cover another exception I made for my dear Atkinson I detest movie tie in coversThe first I read was the one for Agra Editions Maigret s Dead Man in November 2018 and this one from Penguin editions when I was still in the transitional period between holidays and routine aka holiday bluesI cannot remember a lot from this book but what I remember is the atmosphere the noir atmosphere and the slow and steady pace of the plot In Maigret s Dead Man we had a man who felt threatened and called from various parts of the city to Maigret s office for a chance to help him and catch his persecutors but the title gives us the answer whether this man succeeds to escape or notIn Maigret sets a trap women are murdered one after the other in Montmartre and Maigret has to find a way to lure the killer with a bait a human beingUnfortunately the series was cancelled after 4 adaptations of 4 books. It is a hot and steamy summer and Maigret is hatching a plan to capture a serial murderer by playing on the killer's perverse vanity He finally succeeds .

By SimenonOf course I will also read the other two books adapted with Atkinson as Maigret The Night at the Crossroads and Maigret at Picratt s unfortunately without Atkinson on the coverBut I have to learn and live without this obsession of having a matching cover for everything I buyMore in Greek at My fun weekend read I gobble Maigret mysteries up like a bowl of chocolateThis mystery is about a serial killer Someone is killing women in Montmartre All the victims are found on the street stabbed with their clothes slashed They have not been sexually assaulted or robbed The woman have nothing in common one is a prostitute one a housewife and one a professional They are murdered around the same time at night in the same neighborhood Who is doing it and whyThe story
Largely Circles Around The Psychology Of Acircles around the psychology of a killer What sort of mind wants to kill And why does this particular murderer kill only women in a certain place at a certain time This is what Maigret using the principals of psychology plans to find outOf course he does and the result is interesting but you ll have to read the book to find out for yourself The novel takes the reader to Paris in early August It is a rather hot and stale summer where breezes are few and those that arise are arid and dry Enough to make anyone wish for rain At the headuarters of the Police Judiciaire at uai des Orf vres Inspector Maigret feels very much like a man under siege The press sensing that a big story is about to break have made themselves like permanent fixtures in the police station Over the past 6 months there have been a number of murders of young women in the Montmartre section of the city Maigret has been hard pressed to determine who the murderer could be as well as a possible rationale behind the killings Most of the novel is taken up with the steps taken by Maigret to set up a trap to snare once and for all the murderer and restore tranuility in the neighborhood A serial killer is murdering
