This film was turned into a television series four years later, with Michael Gambon replacing Richard Harris as Maigret. This ended up being the first of two roles the actors would share, as they would also later both play Albud Dumbledore in the Harry Potter films. See more »
Rumpled French detective Maigret's friend Mr. Durban, a private investigator, is killed while riding the train to Paris and his body is dumped in a river. This touches off a hunt for the killer(s) that leads to a rich industrialist and a family full of entanglements. The deaths multiply until Maigret finds the key.
Richard Harris plays the part of Maigret superbly. His interviewing of suspects is so very intense that the air fairly crackles as he performs. All in all a very good mystery.
