About 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.

Review:

Maigret ranks with Holmes and Poirot in the pantheon of fictional detective immortals. -- People

[Simenon was] a writer who, more than any other crime novelist, combined a high literary reputation with popular appeal. -- P. D. James
