Although 18-year-old René Delfosse comes from a wealthy family and 16-year-old Jean Chabot has a nice office job and lives at home, the feckless pair live beyond their means as they carouse night after night at the Gai-Moulin nightclub. The teenagers have taken to raiding tills and embezzling from the petty cash fund to keep themselves in drink and dancing. Set in Liège, Belgium, author Georges Simenon’s hometown, The Dancer at the Gai-Moulin begins with Delfosse and Chabot’s amateurish at [...]

If it's possible, I think I have at last found my favorite Maigret book. Ever. This is a faster paced yet easier to follow version of the best parts of Simenon's series. And while the classic Maigret features (the psychological issues surrounding the crime, a climactic and satisfying ending, a clueless but endearing local police officer) are still there, the novel certainly stands out for straying from the common path. First, Inspector Maigret doesn't even appear as a central character until alm [...]

Maigret doesn't even appear until the middle of the book, but his presence is felt from the beginning. Published in 1931, there's a lot in this story which fits in with the goings-on of young people today -- too much money, too little direction, disenchantment with work, partying nights, looking for excitement in the wrong places. Throw in a little espionage and moving corpses and you have a really good mystery.

I've been aware of the prolific Georges Simenon for years but for some reason have not picked up his Maigret mysteries. Thank goodness for the "bag sale" at my local library! I came home with a small stack of them recently and this was the first one I picked up to read; perhaps the greatest pleasure it offered is that I know there are dozens and dozens and dozens more of Simenon's novels out there waiting for me . . The characterization is great;. . . the setting is so vivid I feel like I walked [...]

Indagine un po' deludente questa de "La Ballerina di Gai-Moulin", nel quale il nostro commissario si trova in trasferta a Liegi per indagare su una strano riccone di origine greca ritrovato poi morto in un cassa di vimini. Simenon in questo romanzo breve concede davvero poco spazio alle intuizioni di Maigret, e tra l'altro buona metà del romanzo è dedicata alla descrizione del locale e dei suoi due (poco) raccomandabili ragazzi che lo frequentano, Defosse e Chabot. L'entrata in scena del commi [...]

Margret stories are short and involved, but most of the time the reader is not expected to be able to solve the crimes. At least, I have found that to be true. There is a "cult" following for Simenon and the writing of these stories. This one was about a night club that was the scene of a mystery and the death of a man. I would not need to say more as it might give it away, but there are young decadent teens, arrogant rich parent, bored foreigners, and a tired and middle age dancer. I keep readi [...]

Questo Maigret si discosta dai precedenti per un aspetto abbastanza importante; Maigret entra in scena nella seconda metà del romanzo. Prima invece, largo spazio è dedicato ai due protagonisti, due giovani viveurs di Liegi, alle prese con bagordi serali e piccole truffe… Maigret c'è ma non si vede, nel senso che è una presenza costante ma non identificata… Finale un po' piatto, peccato, altrimenti da 5 stelle

Simenon takes a different approach with this 10th novel in the Maigret series. (view spoiler)[The good Inspector does not appear until the middle of the book, but then it becomes apparent that he was roaming around for quite a whiled even controlling many of the actions with a heavy hand. (hide spoiler)] I felt it had a bit of an uneven pace, though many sections are some of my favorites in the 10 first novels. Good read.

One of my least favorite Maigrets. It's more of a procedural than others I've read, and lacks some of the psychological nuances of others in the series.

The host welcomed two guests: Professors Sian Reynolds and Peter France. The Maigret book chosen ("La Danseuse du Gai-Moulin" - published 1931 in France) had been recently translated into English by Sian as "The Dancer at the Gai Moulin". Peter was the editor of the “Oxford Guide to Literature in English Translation”. Thus the evening provided an opportunity not just to discuss the Maigret book but also the wider question of translations of literature into English. This had been an issue the [...]

MAIGRET AT THE GAI-MOULIN (Dancer at the Gai-Moulin) (Maigret #10, 1940) by Georges Simenon, depicts two teens falling into trouble at the seedy nightclub Gai-Moulin. They plan to rob the till after closing time but that goes out the window when they stumble across a dead body in the club. But the next day the body is found stuffed in a lidded wicker basket at the zoo. The dead man was a rich playboy, there is no police search at the club, and the boys are shocked. This is a classic mystery with [...]

Two unpleasant 18 year olds are drinking at a less than glamorous night club that they attend often. It is not busy and they chat with the dancers. The atmosphere created in the Gai-Moulin is sensational, to the extent that the reader feels they are there, drinking at the bar, observing. A broad-shouldered stranger is at the bar also, as is a 'Turk' as the boys believe. There is tension, the sniff of murder is in the air. This is my first Maigret novel and I wonder how I waited so long. I have r [...]

The version I read was called Maigret at the "Gai Moulin" but the Dancer is the original French title. Anyway, this is a bit unusual in that M does not make an appearance until 2/3 of the way through the book. Two Belgian youths in Liege are experimenting with a life of dissipation. When trying to rob a night club, the Gai-Moulin, they see a body on the floor and panic. One boy is distraught, but the spoiled son of a local business man goes another way, taking up with a dancer from the club. The [...]

A könyv eleje szerintem kicsit tovább lett nyújtva, mint kell, nem értettem, hol van Maigret végre? Mikor jelenik meg? És azt mondtam magamnak: Gabi, nagyon régen olvastad ezt a könyvet, ha semmi nem rémlik belőle. :-)Valahogy hiába jelent azonban meg Maigret, nekem az események nem pörögtek fel. Nem éreztem azt a kisugárzást, amit eddig minden Simenon minden krimijében éreztem. Eddig pár oldal után ott éreztem magam a helyszínen, most ez elmaradt.Összességében azt mond [...]

The perfect read for a journey to Bristol and back - gripping, entertaining, but not too challenging. And at 150-odd pages, I finished it whilst passing through Slough.A great novel if written by anyone other than Simenon. As far as the great man is concerned, this is just another very good offering. It's hard to say much without spoiling the intricacies of the plot, but what was a fine touch was for Maigret to have made no entry into the novel until halfway through.

The first Maigret I've read, having become interested to read the books since the new TV version with Rowan Atkinson. I enjoyed the story, a fast - paced whodunnit which I read quickly, both because it was short, but also because it was full of suspense and held my interest to the end. I look forward to reading more Maigret.

So many twists in this story it made it even more fast paced than usual.In this one there has been a murder of a mysterious visitor to the Gai-Moulin club, who has done this and who is involved? This story revolves mainly around Jean and Renee, who frequent the club and Adele one of the dancers at the club. What do these 3 have to hide?

Of course, Simenon and his detective Maigret never disappoint, but this one is especially good because of the characters and the particular slices of Parisian social strata and of police life as well.

Very weak and contrived plot. Maigret is inept and heavy handed, not ruminative and clever as he usually is. But easy to read and diverting at least.

Con questo romanzo Maigret arriva in doppia cifra e così il suo autore decide di variare la ricetta: se il quadro d’insieme resta simile nel suo unire ipocrisie e piccole avidità, la struttura al contrario cambia. Il commissario entra in scena solo a metà dello percorso, mentre nei capitoli precedenti è un’ombra che compare e ricompare, assai più minacciosa che rassicurante, contribuendo a minare il sistema nervoso dei protagonisti. Che, in un ingranaggio abbastanza corale, sono sopratt [...]
