Maigret of the Month: June 2010


Louise Voivin had been found poisoned in her apartment in the Boulevard Beaumarchais, with a dose of digitalis. M has been interrogating her sister, Nicole Lamure, 18, who lived with Louise and her husband, Ferdinand Voivin, 37, a gem dealer. Digitalis had been found in the house in a packet marked 'bicarbonate of soda'. Both Lamure and Voivin deny killing Louise, though they readily admit to being lovers, and having lived the past six months, since Louise had discovered their affair, in a strange way, with Louise only communicating with her sister by notes, Ferdinand sleeping on the couch, and Louise spying on everything they did. M finally realizes that Ferdinand, on a trip to Antwerp or Amsterdam, had bought the digitalis, thinking he'd kill the three of them rather than continue that life. He'd tried small doses and they'd all gotten slightly sick. One day his wife, her stomach upset, had taken the 'bicarbonate of soda' and poisoned herself accidentally.
