Maigret in Montmartre

This is the fourth episode, in case you consider this a series, or the third sequel (well, terminology), and the one I liked the least. I am not sure if because I knew the story (I’ve read the book) or if my predisposition was just different this time.

The cast is great, the acting good, the atmosphere authentic. But I do not think that the story was well told. Although I’ve read the book, I did not recall completely the history, and I confess that, at the end, I did not really understand the history. I had to think about it, trying to remember the book, to be able to glue parts. This is the first time I needed such a thing (and in fact, the first time I could do it). Again, reasons can vary…

In any case, if this year we have any other episode, I would watch it happily.
