From the Introduction:
Georges Simenon was born at Liege in Belgium in 1903........He has published over 180 novels in his own name, 67 of which belong to the Inspector Maigret series, and his work has been published in 32 languages. He has had a great influence upon the French cinema, and more than 40 of his novels have been filmed.
What a superb body of work Simenon left for us to enjoy.
I wonder who was the better British television Maigret, Rupert Davis 1960-1969, or Michael Gambon 1992-1993?
