Rowan Atkinson stars in this TV movie adaptation of a '30s French crime novel in the title role. Inspector Maigret (Atkinson) is under pressure from his superiors and the press to catch a serial killer of women with no common feature except their hair. Making no progress, Maigret sets a trap using undercover police women. It's rare to see Atkinson take on a serious role, however he's supposedly a huge fan of the novels and took it on that basis. If you're a fan of those old Poirot TV movies with David Suchet, you're in for a treat.
