A very good mystery
26 October 2001 | by biker451See all my reviews

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.
