Overview

“One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . . Simenon was unequaled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories.” —The Guardian

Convinced that he needs a vacation, Maigret resolves to take two weeks off—but when a scandalous murder makes headlines, he can’t help but get involved

Maigret is given two weeks off work and decides to spend them in Paris with Madame Maigret, enjoying himself and avoiding police headquarters entirely. But when an interesting case arises in his absence with Inspector Janvier taking the lead, Maigret can’t resist his investigative urges. Through anonymous notes to Janvier, calls to newspaper reporters, and some creative independent sleuthing, Maigret Enjoys Himself finds our hero wrapped up in yet another murder—this time, off the clock.
