This is the first of Japrisot's crime novels, a good solid French policier from the final years of the hat-and-trenchcoat era, opening with a murder in the best Simenon tradition: a woman is found dead at the Gare de Lyon, in a couchette compartment of the overnight train from Marseille. The police need to talk to the other five passengers who shared the compartment, but someone with a very large revolver seems to be getting there first...

The plot is perhaps just a bit too busy, to the extent that we need a full chapter of epilogue to explain it all to us afterwards, and there's too much victim's POV, but there is a lot of nice detail, and a subversive feel that you certainly don't get in Simenon. These are policemen whose first concern is to get the case closed and the judge off their backs with a minimum of paperwork - if that involves catching the murderer it's a nice bonus, but finding an excuse to transfer the case to another department would be even better. And we get a sense too that they are aware that history is catching up with them. Sooner or later they are going to have to swap their overcoats for leather jackets and start carrying radios instead of making phone calls from bars, and most of them aren't too happy about that! ( )

The solution to the mystery is very clever and I can see the author wanting to write a story that uses it. But I wish the book had been better. ( )

The inevitable comparison is to Simenon's Maigret series, but this is less an inspector-centered point-of-view mystery than an ensemble presentation. Victim and witness get as much attention as the protagonist detective, as do his superiors and subordinates. The result is a psychological potpourri as interesting as the whodunit itself, though Japrisot also gives the reader a more intricate puzzle to solve than anything I've come across in Simenon. If not for the too neat scramble at the end to tie up every loose end, some of which did not need tying up, I would have given it five stars. ( )
