These DVD's on Maigret are excellent and the English subtitles are well done. I have all the sets on this subject. I would recommend them if you enjoy Detective stories. These episodes featuring the late French Actor Bruno Cremmer are in my humble opinion closer to the books and better then the version featuring Michael Gambon.

5.0 out of 5 stars The last and one of the best of the Cremer Maigret series. Nov. 6 2013
By Merrily Baird - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
With episodes 49 through 54 in set 9, we come to the end of the finest French TV series depicting the investigations of fictional Commissaire Jules Maigret of the Paris Police Judiciaire. As well, we come to the end of the acting career of Bruno Cremer, who played the role of Maigret throughout. By the time that these episodes were filmed in 2004 and 2005, Cremer was already battling throat cancer. Indeed, his illness had taken such a toll by this time that episode 54 had to be released with the track of someone else's voice.

This last fact makes episode 54 too painful for me to watch again. However, several of the other episodes in set 9 are among my favorites in the entire series, and I especially treasure the fact that the stories covered in set 9 are those you are least likely to have read as English-language translations of Georges Simenon's novels. From a purely sociological point of view, the episode regarding an old lady's companion most fascinates me because it explicitly addresses the theme of social class distinctions in France. Nearly all of the Maigret novels touch on this subject in one way or another, but in this instance the juge d'instruction goes so far as to lecture Maigret on the commissaire's inferior bourgeois background. In general, the episodes of set 9 are directed with more finesse and provide more interesting detail than a number of early episodes. "Seven Little Crosses" is particularly notable in this regard as it focuses in part on the sometimes fractious interaction of inspectors at Maigret's Quai des Orfevres office and features a police chase as followed across a wall map of Paris located there.

We have all the Maigret series. A MUST HAVE.., #9--- We love his subtle, soft spoken,and seemingly naive approach to solving a perplexing mystery. Sadly ,all great things come to an end and he is irreplaceable. Since his passing(08/07/2010) we feel that in all probability a #10 or beyond will not be forthcoming. We re-watch and treasure the ones we have because there is always something new to find in the rewind.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Maigret version by far Jan. 26 2014

For the real Maigret, I highly recommend the versions starring the actor Bruno Cremer. Outstanding casting and location work. This is also the most extensive series of the Simenon Maigret stories.
4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent story of one murder after another March 24 2014

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I really like the character of Maigret--he is so good at his detecting one murder
after another in a very low key manner but he never misses after much intrigue
definitely worth a purchase and also I love the on location in Paris or Belgium
making it all the better--there are 2 Maigret one is subtitled which is this one
and the other actor playing Maigret is not sub-titled both are excellent in the part.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately, the last of the series Nov. 13 2013
By Bill Richardson - Published on

Comparing this to the Gambon series, this series starring Cremer is a clear winner ... even with sub-titles. Let's face it they were written in French.
