Storyline

One morning, an agitated man calls the Police judiciaire, asking for Maigret. He claims he’s being followed, by someone trying to kill him. Before Maigret can get the details, he hangs up, calls back again from various cafés, until the calls finally stop. That night, his body is found, his face badly beaten, stabbed to death. Riddled with guilt for not having saved “his” dead man, Maigret is determined to find the murderer.
