Detective story set in 1930's France and Belgium. Slow-paced in a good way. A quick read.

I agree with Andre' Gide who said, "The greatest of all, the most genuine novelist we have had in literature." (See his romans durs some of which have been reissued by NYRB.)

"I love reading Simenon. He makes he think of Chekov."-Faulkner
Part of Penguin's recent reissue of the Belgian writer Georges Simenon Inspector Maigret series. For those who like their mysteries European and pessimistic.
