A wonderful read to wind down the Christmas holidays. Maigret is a wonderful character, and the stories have that fabulous film noir aspect to them that have made them true classics of the mystery genre. Recommended

It is Christmas in Paris, but beneath the sparkling lights and glittering decorations lie sinister deeds and dark secrets… I’ve read these stories in French but now they’re in a lovely little collection which is perfect for Christmas and any time you want to be transported to Paris really. Maigret is an iconic French character and it’s a treat to have him in bite size here so to speak. The stories are nicely chosen and very smoothly translated whilst encompassing all the French flourishes Maigret is so well known for. I found the stories so different yet they complemented each other well. No spoilers here but a good collection Maigret and Paris At Christmas. What’s not to like?
