"What touches me about [the character of] Maigret is his profound humanity. He doesn't have certainty. He stops, he hesitates, he searches. The super cop like Sherlock or Hercule arrives, finds the immediate little failing that gives the game away. What touches me most is that Maigret is very human, gradually finding his way... For him, the question is who is the victim, as much as who committed the crime."  MAIGRET's writer/director Patrice Leconte with The Canberra Times' Jane Freebury.
