Georges Simenon - Maigret and the Dead Girl

Maigret #45

“One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . . Simenon was unequaled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories.” —The Guardian

When the body of a young girl is found in a Montmartre park, Maigret must team up with a rival investigator to bring her killer to justice.


Maigret and fellow inspector Lognon clash in their investigations into the murder of an unknown young woman in Paris. Maigret endeavors to piece together the story of the girl, and in doing so, uncovers details about her past and her character that lead him to the truth behind her tragic demise.
