Maigret of the Month: April, 2012


While M has been posted to a provincial town for six months or more, to reorganize their Flying Squad, a 12-year-old altar-boy, Justin, reports that he'd seen a dead body in the Rue Sainte-Catherine on his way to the morning mass at the hospital. But the body has disappeared without a trace. The Judge in the house opposite where Justin said he saw the body said he didn't hear anyone go past, but a few houses before a man said he'd heard running. M interviews Justin and the Judge, and realizes that Justin had actually seen the body before the Judge's house, and the the killer had run after Justin, not in the opposite direction, as he'd said. M has Besson, one of the inspectors, bring a list of the tenants of the street, and has him arrest Frankelstein, a foreigner, dealer in jewelry. M says he's a fence, and he'd killed a disgruntled gang member on his doorstep. He'd caught Justin and made him promise not to tell the true story.
