Maigret
Death in a Vegetable Garden #130

Very strange, the cadaver of this homeless bum, discovered at dawn in the shed of a vegetable garden in Saint-Mesmin. Equally strange, the two sisters who own the tool shed and the several meters of growing vegetables that surround it. They haven't spoken to each other since long before the war and, in the village, no one has the same version of the cause of their dispute which goes back to 1924. Only the notary of the next village over, an old friend of the family, knows that Antonin is responsible for it all. Thirty years ago, Antonin was engaged to one of the sisters, but married the other, probably for her inheritance. He then disappeared. The sisters divided their house in two, with two entrances and a wall to separate them. But that didn't stop the loud arguments heard several times a week with much swearing involved. Maigret, who was already investigating the murder of a homeless bum in Paris, arrives in Saint-Mesmin to see if the two murders may somehow be connected. And if he has this idea running through his head, it must be true... Thus he debarks to torment the Fouly family, rich farmers with a grandmother as stubborn as a mule. Stubborn, yes, and perhaps a bit senile, but full of memories nonetheless. Then there is Louis, the youngest son, who is not telling everything he knows. Maigret also encounters a group of youngsters that hold a dance every Saturday night in a barn, and many of the villagers who come to look at the body without any recognition of who it might be. No one knows. And the icing on the cake: he must enter the Sirouet sisters' home. They must have the key to the mystery surrounding the death... But getting past their doors is like breaking into a prison in broad daylight. 1999. In French with English subtitles.
