THE BAR ON THE SEINE can be summed up as a nice and tidy detective novel peopled with an interesting array of characters, some of whom Inspector Maigret matches wits with. The drama begins in a prison cell where a man (Monsieur Lenoir) –- a petty criminal sentenced to death whom Maigret had arrested some time earlier -- awaits word about a possible reprieve.
