After telling Maigret she overheard a plot to kill 'the countess' club singer Arlette is strangled and soon afterwards the body of an elderly, reclusive countess is also discovered. Maigret believes a third person was present when Arlette was killed and is anxious to trace a man called Oscar, whose name Arlette cried out in her sleep. Meanwhile young rent boy Philippe, who shared the countess's drug addiction, n survives an attempt on his life but is too scared to help the police. Maigret finds out that both the dead women once lived at a Nice hotel, where the countess's husband died in odd circumstances and where Oscar also worked. This leads him to track down Oscar and to the closure of his case. Written by don @ minifie-1

Pretty good remake of "oldies" - with a surprise choice for the leading role
6 January 2018 | by BeneCumbSee all my reviews

/refers to all 4 films with R. Atkinson as Maigret in 2016-17/ In fact, the Brits were the first to create a TV series from G. Simenon´s books - already in 1960 (R. Davies as Maigret), then again in 1992 (with M. Gambon). I have seen them sporadically, without much memories, but this I remember that Maigret was a thickset guy (the same type in Italian and French series). And now Atkinson - how come? Would it be perhaps some Mr. Bean and Johnny English included? But hell, no - he is a talented actor, I had no ambivalent feelings from the start. The French atmosphere is recorded realistically as well, followng the path of K. Branagh as Wallander where the language is English, but all the venues, dresses, cars, etc. original, and as I did not remember the previous series or books, I could watch the course of events approvingly. As for plots, the 1st episode "Maigret Sets a Trap" was least interesting and soon predictable, but the other 3 were pleasantly dynamic and thrilling, so I had to see the whole episode at once, without splitting. If you like Poirot-Lewis-Morse type of crime dramas with usually 1 case per episode, then this Maigret is definitely for you as well.
