The French-made Inspector Maigret offers one of the best-ever Maigrets in the form of veteran tough guy Jean Gabin, who played the character three times throughout the 1950s. In Maigret Sets a Trap, the inspector tackles the case of a psychopathic serial killer. The female victims have all been stripped and stabbed but none of the women was raped. Putting two and two together, Maigret determines that the killer was motivated by rage and frustration rather than sex. Maigret Tend un Piege avoids sensationalism in favor of slow-building suspense. Originally released in the U.S. as Inspector Maigret, the movie was retitled Woman-Bait.

4 of 5 Faithful Adaptation and Entertaining Film January 13, 2020
Reviewer: F. Hounder Clay from Reynoldsburg, OH United States  
This is a good adaptation. It captures the look and feel that is prevalent in the Simenon source; the paris streets at night. The acting is very good and Gabin makes a perfect Maigret.
