      I did like that while Maigret sits back and figures out the case from ju The American he presents is both familiar and unfamiliar. Obviously, the country has changed since this book was written, because Simenon still presents an optimistic and admiring look at America, with a few troubling aspects/5(52). The crime of murder at the crossroads seems open and shut. In the end there are a few twists and turns with Maigret solving the mystery. Else is a great character and her one eyed brother a little bit crazy in a nice way. The smuggling aspect is figured out by Maigret and then everything falls into place/5().

        The book that introduces Maigret to the readers. It shows how other novels will be like. There is sexism given the author's opinion of women.

Maigret and Gruyaert share this way of looking – this insight.’.

Two more Maigret, — The Lock at Charenton and Margret Returns. The first has to do with family skeletons and longstanding hatred, solved before Maigret retires; the second, Maigret comes out of retirement to save nephew Philippe in a murder-drug-women case. The man of silences and adhesive sleuthing comes out well.

At the opening of a Maigret novel, as of any detective novel, a body drops, and at the end of the book we find out who did it.
