SPOILER ALERT: Conclusion to “Maigret Sets a Trap.”



The episode of “Maigret: Maigret Sets a Trap” that aired Friday, Jan. 4, 2019, ended prematurely, just before the murderer was revealed. We apologize for any frustration this may have caused.  SOPTV will be re-airing “Maigret: Maigret Sets a Trap” in its entirety in a few months.

But, if you’d like to know who the murderer is before then, keep reading.




Marcel Monsin was the main murderer who committed 5 of the murders and was locked up for a good portion of the show. But the wife murdered the sixth victim to free him, since he was in jail while the murder was committed. He committed the murders because he hated his wife and mother.

    Enjoyed that episode and was surprised it didn’t finish. However, audience had all the clues needed to solve it. Maigret said it was either the mom or wife and the one of them would be upset that she hadn’t thought of it first. Mom made the fuss saying she did it, only to make her son believe it was she who loved him most.
