With a scotland yard counterpart in tow maigret questions his own skills but that doesnt slow him down much, he listens asks questions sweats in the heat drinks and absorbs small island gossip and culture. His mind composts all the accumulated garbage and suddenly a tulip sprouts up and he knows who and why the victim died. I liked this story because i got to see how his mind works, those who love the mystery and detective stories of the first half of twentieth century will love watching him work. try one.
