Was this an Existentialist murder? The police asked that question of the hut&apos;s owner. &quot;An interesting problem,&quot; he answered tranquilly.<br />Living by Larceny. The dead man was François Vintenon, a habitué of Paris&apos; Latin Quarter. The sensitive, introverted son of a well-to-do merchant, François had joined a group of Left Bank surrealists.
