A young man visits Maigret at home at lunchtime. Unfortunately the Chief Inspector is late, having taken too long over an aperitif. His nervous visitor doesn't wait; he also steals Maigret's revolver, which happens to be lying around.

Mrs. Maigret has taken an interest in this sensitive young man, and so Maigret does too. He'd like to keep the foolish fellow from getting into trouble with that gun.

Meanwhile the boy's father is involved in a murder case, but nothing is quite what it seems.

In the confused course of events, there's a brief encounter between Maigret and his old friend Mr. Pike, the Scotland Yard detective. This is especially enjoyable if you've read My Friend Maigret.

The chief inspector makes fine distinctions in this book between truly despicable crimes and crimes that are better overlooked. That's the charm of it.

This is definitely a book I will read again, as with most of Simenon's books. Very engaging and hard to put down!

Georges Simenon was born in Liege, Belgium, in 1903. A hugely prolific writer, his best known creation is Inspector Maigret - a French policeman, based in Paris. "Maigret's Revolver" was first published in 1954.

Maigret's trouble begins with a phone-call from his wife, who is curious to know if he'll be home for lunch. It's a little unusual for her to call, but there is apparently a young gentleman asking to speak to the Inspector. The matter is personal and the gentleman in question won't even give his name...nevertheless, Maigret informs his wife he'll be home around midday. Unfortunately, our hero is delayed by a couple of swift drinks at the Brasserie Dauphine and, by the time he arrives at home, his young visitor has departed. Maigret probably wouldn't have been too bothered...only for the fact that his visitor had also swiped a Smith and Wesson .45, a gift to Maigret from the FBI. Thankfully, it wasn't loaded - Maigret had never used it and appears to have viewed it more as a keepsake. Therefore, if the young man is keen to use it, he'll have to visit a gunsmith's to buy the ammunition and Maigret begins his search appropriately. He contacts Police Headquarters, who arrange for the gunsmiths in town to watch for anyone buying the relevant cartridges.

Later than evening, Maigret and his wife are going to dinner with Doctor Pardon - a near neighbour who is very keen on cooking. Pardon had also invited an old classmate called Lagrange...well, more accurately, Lagrange had cadged the invitation in the hope of meeting the famous Inspector Maigret. After all the fuss, Pardon is puzzled that Lagrange fails to turn up and calls round the following day - to discover that, not only does Lagrange appear to have fallen ill, but also that his son has gone missing. Even though he knows it would be a huge coincidence if the missing son and the mysterious revolver-thief were the same person, he contacts Maigret and asks him to call visit the ailing father.

A little old-fashioned, unsurprisingly - with Maigret running around the city (and beyond) chasing down leads and following up sightings. A short, though very enjoyable and easily read book - absolutely recommended.

This is the first Simenon I've read in ages. I'd forgotten why his mystery novels are so famous and good: smooth, intricate plotting around a fallible policeman with his little worries, yet a crackerjack, logical French brain. They have a steady, systematic pace, police procedure in place but mostly off-stage, not at all a "thriller" (despite all the ingredients: a gun, a body, a guy on the run, a femme fatale, night). The prose is direct and economical, yet what convolutions it conceals. It is remarkable how everything just falls into place, with little visible effort on Superintendent Maigrets' part, calmly directing his minions, often but a step behind the criminals. Or should I say "suspects," since Maigret often ends in defending or even exonerating the suspect when he traps or fingers the true culprit, to the reader's surprise. In this novel, just about everything we initially think about the nervous old man--or the young fellow who walked off with Maigret's revolver while his wife wasn't looking--turns out erroneous. There are no good stopping places--Maigret even works through the night--and thankfully the concise novel is easy to read in one go.

Georges Simenon novels are always a pleasure to read, and this one is especially so. The story, which begins innocently enough, soon becomes complicated. However, the writing remains clear and simple. Only a few writers can tell so much with so few words.

When Maigret's revolver, a gift from the FBI, is stolen the French detective gets involved in getting it back--not that he carries it or has ever shot it. Soon distracted by the discovery of a body in a trunk at the Paris railroad station, Maigret starts tracking a possible suspect to London. There is a lengthy section set in the Savoy Hotel with Maigret waiting and waiting, getting thirsty, getting hungry, and still waiting for his quarry. It is astonishingly real and results in his solving a murder and possibly preventing two more deaths.

The best Simenon detective novel is always the last one I read. I can certainly recommend this one to crime fiction readers. There are no car chases, no gunfights, no gratuitous sex scenes, but there is perfect writing, which is more than enough.
