Inspector Maigret tries to trap a killer and discovers why a happily married, wealthy, and talented man should want to bump off women at night. Jean Gabin is perfect as Georges Simenon's secure and steady sleuth, and old-hand Jean Delannoy expertly keeps up the pace and suspense in this enjoyable whodunnit.
"Delightful, Maigret Sets a Trap is Highly Recommended."
Writers Georges Simenon, Michel Audiard, Jean Delannoy and Rodolphe-Maurice Arlaud
