"Maigret has fallen into disfavor with his Paris superiors and been spitefully shunted to a district supervisor's job in the provinces on the northern French coast. Here, among mussel-gathers and lobstermen, he suffers depression and boredom. He is an outsider; even the local police inspector is dull and predictable, as everything in the coastal villages appears to be. But then murder brings the spice of death to Maigret's life.
"This is an unusual Maigret, in an unusual setting. It was written in Nieul-sur-Mer - where Simenon spent part of the war years, an exile himself- and belongs to the high-watermark years of his productivity."
