    Like Waiting for Godot only more so

    Maigret doesn't work a the same pace as modern detectives. His methods seem to be so much simpler. The joy of reading a Simenon (any Simenon) is that it slows you down. Savour the pace of life in the French police station in the days when a case was solved by a process of pipe smoking and pastis and plenty of time to go home for lunch. Even so, there are twists and turns and blind alleys to be led up before the culprit is found. As well as characters who have been mistreated or are apparently so straight that they couldn't be the perpetrator. My favourite moment was the discovery that people used to wear "goose poo" shoes in Paris - a fashion statement.
