SIMENON SIMENON "REPORT" - MAIGRET AND THE OLD PEOPLE
The Mendocino Beacon - 04/12/2020 - Priscilla Comen - “Maigret and the Old People” by Georges Simenon is the wonderful story of Detective Maigret and how he solves another crime for the Paris bureau. He and his wife have had dinner with friends and the friend has given him an article in a journal about his profession and how psychology helps in its solutions.
Maigret goes to his office by bus as he has for 25 years, puffs on his pipe, and goes through his files. The chief directs him to go to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and he takes Janvier with him. A young and an old woman are waiting for him. The old woman cannot hear well, as she cocks her head to listen. She is the maidservant to Count St. Hilaire, and has worked there 46 years. This morning she found him dead in his office. He’d been shot several times, but it was the first shot that killed him. The ministry man who is there as well, says it was not suicide and doesn’t want the press involved. The Count was Catholic and suicides cannot be buried in sacred ground...>>>
