'The father of contemporary European detective fiction' Ann Cleeves

'Florentin pulled one of those faces which had once amused his classmates so much and disarmed the teachers . . .

Maigret didn't dare to ask why he had come to see him. He studied him, struggling to believe that so many years had passed . . .

He was so used to acting the fool that his face automatically assumed comical expressions. But his face was still greyish, his eyes anxious.'

A visit from a long-lost schoolmate who has fallen on hard times forces Maigret to unpick a seedy tangle of love affairs in Montmartre, and to confront the tragedy of a wasted life.

Penguin is publishing the entire series of Maigret novels in new translations. This novel has been published in a previous translation as Maigret's Boyhood Friend.

Review:

One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . . Simenon was unequalled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories (Guardian)

A supreme writer . . . unforgettable vividness (Independent)

The most addictive of writers . . . a unique teller of tales (Observer)
