Maigret: the complete series. Review by Alan Price. The avuncular detective holds his place high with such other greats like Sherlock Holmes or Philip Marlowe. Network should be highly praised for restoring Maigret. A TV classic returns.
Simenon The Man, The Books, The Films by Barry Forshaw. Review by Alan Price. I came very late in the day to the works of Georges Simenon. It was five years ago whilst talking, with a friend, about the early 1960’s BBC TV series of Maigret when I picked up my first Maigret novel. It was The Misty Harbour (1932). This story of a disturbed man found wandering the streets of Paris, with no recollection of who he is or how he got there was remarkably compelling.
