Its the first one. Thank goodness for these Penguin reissues, I was starting to think Id never find a copy. These early Maigrets are nothing like what the series would become, potentially Simenon had high hopes for literary success for the handful of Maigret novels hed written before launching them as a complete work in a hail of publicity- thus explaining the more existential nature of them compared to the casual musings over a delicate meal and stiff drink that would characterise the later works.Of the early books Pietr is the most impressive as a stand alone roman dur but its not really what Ive come to look for in a Maigret, unfortunately.

Essentially Maigret follows a man around Paris for 160 pages after a murder on a train, the whole time learning to identify and sympathise with the criminal. Thats pretty typical stuff for the series but the eventual plot is so convoluted and revealed in such strange and unlikely ways that it all feels a bit rushed and flat.I wouldnt be surprised at all to find out that Christopher Priest had read this novel, such are the similarities with his very famous work.
