Does any mystery fan need an introduction to Georges Simenon's superb and internationally popular fiction? Masterful sleuthing by Chief Inspector Jules Maigret of the Paris Surete investigates the death of a dotty old lady, who wasn't so dotty after all. In this rendering, British actor Andrew Sachs does a particularly nice job with characterization and the inner monologues of Maigret's reasoning. Two things are missing: Gallic flavor--the action sounds more as if it's unfolding in London than Paris--and the central character--as read by Sachs, Maigret's lines are totally flat.
