When the son of a wealthy perfume manufacturer is stabbed to death, his parents reveal to Maigret that he was a loner who wandered Paris taping people's conversations. Among his recordings is that of a group of people conspiring to pull off an art theft, one of them a sailor known to pack a Swedish switchblade. As police interrogate the gang and a high-powered lawyer prepares an elaborate defense, Maigret steps back and patiently waits for the real killer to reveal himself. Also includes "Maigret Sets a Trap" and "Maigret's Christmas". September publication date. 2 cassettes.

"A writer who, more than any other crime novelist, combined a high literary reputation with popular appeal."-P. D . JAMES
The investigation of a murder with no apparent motive pushes Maigret to look beyond the simple question of guilt and innocence.
Maigret, accompanying his physician on an emergency call, is drawn into one of his most stubborn cases yet. The victim, the son of a wealthy perfume manufacturer, had been enjoying an odd hobby before his death: collecting human voices with a tape recorder, often in the rougher districts of Paris. But his wallet and his tape recorder have been left untouched, so the killer's motive is unclear. The absence of clues begins to exasperate Maigret until an anonymous letter reveals that he is dealing with no ordinary criminal.
