Storyline

Answering a desperate phone call from a young lady in distress, Maigret finds the drunken young woman in a sleazy bar. The detective chivalrously checks her into a respectable hotel and returns home to complete his interrupted night's sleep. When he reports to work, he finds that the young woman has concocted a charge of attempted rape and finds himself the subject of disciplinary action. Maigret suspects his pursuit of a gang of restaurant thieves is the impetus for this accusation and with the help of his loyal staff, he is able to find the ultimate answer in a dentist's chair.
