Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A triple play from Simenon's eternally popular Inspector Maigret series, these debuted in 1931 (Lock and Head) and 1936, respectively. These petite editions (6.5" x 4.75") all sport art deco covers with beautiful period monochrome pictures by Brassa and a nice photo of Simenon on the inside cover. Very spiffy. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

Georges Simenon (1903–1989) began work as a reporter for a local newspaper at the age of sixteen, and at nineteen he moved to Paris to embark on a career as a novelist. He went on to write seventy-five Maigret novels and twenty-eight Maigret short stories.

Robert Baldick translated many volumes from the French for Penguin Classics, including volumes by Diderot, Flaubert, and Verne, and wrote a biography of Huysmans. He died in 1972.

    Through muck and mud maigret slogs to truth

    at first it seems hopeless because there is so little to work with, but maigret persists. ser along the locks of a river system where people are coming and going and few know each other maigret has to bring magic to his detecting and lots of leg work..like riding a borrowed bike 25 miles in one day in pouring rain while stopping to question people. this story illustrates some of the downsides to detect work, and the story line is intricate and the solution totally unexpected. a must read for maigret fans.
