1x52'

In 1931, French author Georges Simenon created a new character that he hoped would help sell two or three of his mystery novels. More than 100 stories later, Inspector Jules Maigret finally puffed on his pipe for the last time. From print to radio, film and television, Maigret was immortalized with all the iconic appeal of a French Sherlock Holmes. This playful documentary examines the fictional life and times of France’s most celebrated sleuth. The gruff, straight-talking Parisian always got his man. And now we get ours with this full retrospective ‘biography’ of the much-loved Inspector Maigret.
