I've always know Rowan Atkinson as the lovable master of physical comedy from Mr. Bean, but in Maigret, he proves that he has the acting chops for more dramatic roles. Chief Inspector Jules Maigret is a very moral and cerebral detective. He not only wants justice but to also understand what makes both the victim and perpetrator tick. I enjoyed this foray into 1950s Paris, a world still reeling and healing from the trauma of two world wars. The mysteries are very gritty and explore the darker side of humanity, from serial killers to ruthless thieves and emotional and sexual abusers. If you want something more substantial than the usual cozy mystery in an English village, Maigret will take to the edge of your seat.

Didn't think I would like ' Mr Bean ' as Maigret but he is excellent the series well written.

Looking forward to the new series this year

Very gritty and atmospheric. They got all the details right. On top of a very careful production, great performances. Maigret is described as a large man ("5 foot 11 inches tall and heavyset", "his broad shoulders and stolid features reflective of his bourgeois origin"). I was sure Mr. Atkinson was not going to be able to pull it off. After watching these DVDs, I must say that Mr. Atkinson can do a magnificent Maigret. Please make more of it !!!!!! I need to watch some more !!!!!

The mysteries are good, I just had a tough time with Rowan Atkinson in a serious role, it didn't always work. The era was aptly portrayed too.

Maigret (pronounced may-grey) solves crimes, loves his wife, and makes enemies on the Paris police force. This version is in English; it is not a comedy. Atkinson might not have been the best choice for the role because I kept waiting for him to pull faces and goggle his eyes. If you enjoy Agatha Christie, you'll probably enjoy this.

I read a few of the Maigret books but hadn't remembered how dark and raw they were, just that I had enjoyed them. I have never seen Rowan Atkinson do anything except comedy so it is a revelation to see how good an actor that he can be.

I have never been a Rowan Atkinson fan, so I watched this series with some trepidation, since I love the Maigret mysteries and previous films. I found that Mr. Atkinson did an excellent job and heartily recommend the series. Kristi & Abby Tabby
