French film, murder mystery?

I borrowed this film on VHS from the library in 2002-2003 when I was a teenager. I think it was from the 70s or 80s.

I remember a middle aged woman being murdered (stabbed or shot) in an industrial/warehouse type apartment. Two french men (one is her husband maybe and the other is a detective) are trying to sold the murder, but keep making jokes and getting drunk? It keeps jumping all over the place, but couldn’t tell if it was intentionally done or just…french. One minute they are in a subway tunnel, then back in the apartment, seemingly forgetting all about the murder (maybe playing poker?) The ending has the two men and a young blond woman walking across a bridge and sitting in a field?  I also want to say the film name has something to do with “meat” or “butcher”
