Rowan Atkinson stars as detective Jules Maigret in these two gripping crime stories set in 1950s Paris, adapted from the books by Georges Simenon.
Maigret Sets a Trap Montmartre, Paris. A serial killer is stalking the streets. Five women are dead and people are afraid to go out after dark. The newspapers are rife with speculation. And Chief Inspector Maigret is without a lead and under great pressure… Maigret's Dead Man One February morning, an agitated man calls the Police judiciary asking for Maigret. He claims he's being followed by someone trying to kill him. That night, his body is found, his face badly beaten, stabbed to death. Ridden with guilt for not having saved "his" dead man, Maigret is determined to find the murderer.
