Maigret is the great, French detective created by the Belgian writer Georges Simenon. He’s a bit like a mix between Hercule Poirot and Phillip Marlowe. Many, many books were written between the 1930s and 1970s and they have been adapted numerous times into TV shows and movies. I’ve actually watched and written reviews for a number of those adaptations including this one from Britain starring Michael Gambon. You can read my review for the series here.
I’m currently watching a different series from the BBC about Maigret and I’ll post a review of it in these pages soon enough.
