Maigret of the Month: December, 2011

The body of Ernest Borms, a Viennese doctor, is found on the walks of the Bois de Boulogne, not far from the Porte de Bagatelle. He'd been shot, but there isn't a clue. M has an article inserted into the papers that the murder had been quickly solved and that there would be a reenactment of the crime the next morning. The people who show up at the reenactment are followed, and one seems a likely subject. He leads M and his investigators on a chase around Paris that lasts five days, until he is finally identified by a concierge as Stephan Strevzki. M has another article inserted in the paper that the man's wife, Dora Strevzki has disappeared, and when Strevzki reads the paper, he gives himself up, thinking his wife had gotten away. He'd known she was Borms' mistress, and suspected she shot him when she learned he wasn't serious about her. Strevzki had been trying to lead the police away from her. With the help of the best lawyers she was almost acquitted – received a year with remission of sentence.
