Mystery legend Georges Simenon comes to Penguin with classic works in celebration of the iconic Inspector Maigretís 75th anniversary

One of the worldís most successful crime writers, Georges Simenon has thrilled mystery lovers around the world since 1931 with his matchless creation Inspector Maigret. Seventy-five years later, the incomparable Maigret mysteries make their Penguin debut with three of his most compelling cases.

Set in the oppressively squalid streets of Paris, A Manís Head features Simenonís famed detective as he tracks a killer on the run, while the writerís sharp prose evokes the atmosphere of Parisian luxury hotels, seedy bars, and dark alleys.

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