The fifty or more Maigret novels that Georges Simenon wrote after the second world war show Jules Maigret leading a team of operatives at the Quai des Orfèvres. He reports to various supervisors and has to thread his way through a legal bureaucracy, more so than in the early Maigret series from the 1930s. Though he was already retired in Maigret (1934) and comes out of retirement in Maigret se fache (1947), he then manages to stay a year or so away from retirement over the next quarter-century. The world ages around him – notably, at one point, the Maigrets acquire a TV set – but he and his wife and co-workers never seem to grow any older at all.
