Les scrupules de Maigret originally appeared in 1958. It came out in English translation in 1959 as Maigret Has Scruples. The translator then was Robert Eglesfield, and the translator for this new Penguin edition is Shaun Whiteside. 
The original work was the 80th in Simenon’s order of publication, and this work is the 52nd in Penguin’s modern series of translations. 
This novel is interesting for its ménage à trois wherein finger-pointing reveals it is more a ‘house of hate with resulting clever, complex poisoning intrigues. A bonus is the way Maigret works to apply the psychiatry he studies to the case.
