Maigret et le voleur paresseux originally appeared in 1961. It came out in English translation as Maigret and the Lazy Burglar in 1963 and eight reissues with the same title followed through 2006The translator then was Daphne Woodwardand the translator for this new Penguin edition is Howard Curtis. 
The original work was the 85th in Simenon’s order of publication, and this work is the 57th in Penguin’s modern series of translations. 
This novel presents another story that highlights Maigret’s compassion while investigating a case. The murder victim here is a long-term “friend,” a “good” burglar whose professional activity enabled him to support his mother. Because of his “regard” for the dead man, Maigret is saddened and upset. He solves the crime, of course, but not without ensuring that the burglar’s wealth passes on to his mother (and his lover), which is not exactly an action that follows the letter of the law.
