The Venice Train - Georges Simenon’s 1965 tale of mystery and suspense wherein a man's life is transformed forever by a chance meeting with a stranger on a train on route from Venice to Paris could be studied as a major work of existentialism focusing on themes of alienation, anxiety and absurdity. The man is Justin Calmar and the chance meeting is with a gentleman having an Eastern European accent who asks Calmar for a favor - pick up a small case from a locker and take it to a Paris apartment.
Yesterday I read The Venice Train by Georges Simenon. I have read many of his Maigret mysteries but this novel was something different - and simply chilling in its psychological insights. The plot revolves around a man returning to Paris after vacationing in Venice who agrees to help out a stranger by picking up a package for him at a Swiss train station.

The Train is probably the book everyone has been expecting from Simenon. Simenon is an all-round master craftsman-ironic, disciplined, highly intelligent, with fine descriptive power. If we aren’t satisfied now, we are ingrates. Praise for georges simenon. I love to read Simenon. His themes are timeless in their preoccupation with the interrelation of evil, guilt and good; contemporary in their fidelity to the modern context and Gallic in precision, logic and a certain emanation of pain or disquiet. His fluency is of course astonishing. There is nothing like winter in the company of a keg of brandy and the complete works of Simenon.

Venice Train, The. by. Georges Simenon. How many books have you written? Every moron is a critic
Venice Train, The. On the train, a stranger asks him to do him a favour - collect a suitcase from a left luggage locker and call at a nearby flat. In the locker, he finds a suitcase full of cash and in the flat, he finds a murdered woman. He tells nobody, gets back on the train and continues to Paris. His life however, can never be the same again. An unusual story, that pans out differently to how one might expect. How many books have you written? Every moron is a critic.

I have read many Simenon novels and this is one of his best.
I have read many Simenon novels and this is one of his best. It deals with a moral dilemma and has a great set up with incredible suspense. A man mysteriously ends up with a suitcase full of money belonging to a mysterious stranger and goes on the run with it. The ending is a little bleak and I think could have been a little more satisfying, but the journey there is definitely worthwhile. An interesting psychological portrait of a man dirven by inexplicable impulses that he cannot come to terms with
