Inspector Maigret investigates a crime that hasn't yet been committed when a tense, fearful man comes to Maigret's home and announces that he intends to kill his wife and her lover. Maigret feels uneasy as he begins to investigate a crime that hasn't yet happened; what he uncovers in the bistros of Montmartre is a most peculiar menage a trois.

Léonard Planchon, a tense man with a harelip, goes to Maigret with an unusual problem. He wants to kill his wife, or perhaps his wife and her lover, who for two years now have been making him sleep on a cot in the dining room. He has even worked out a plan to hide their bodies in concrete. Uneasily investigating a murder that has not yet been committed, Maigret explores the bistros of Montmartre and uncovers a peculiar-and pathetic-ménage à trois.
