Maigret et le clochard originally appeared in 1963. It came out in English translation as Maigret and the Bum (or sometimes the Dosser) in 1973 with nine subsequent reprints through 2003. The translator then was Jean Stewart, and the translator for this newly entitled Penguin edition is Howard Curtis. 
The original work was the 88th in Simenon’s order of publication, and this work is the 60th in Penguin’s modern series of translations. 
The trigger for this mystery involves a man, beaten and thrown into the Seine for dead, who gets rescued and survives. It turns out he is an elderly former physician, who had abandoned his practice, wife, and daughter, to live homeless in Paris for years. Maigret’s dogged search to identify his assailant is successful, but it ends with an ironic twist. Indeed, the detective and the doctor share certain nobility: “What is impossible is to judge.”
