MAIGRET....2002

1: Maigret: A Man's Head....2002
December 3 2002 14:15 Afternoon Play Geoges Simenon's finest creation, Inspector Maigret of the Police Judiciare in Paris is one of the greatest heroes of detective fiction. Played by Nicholas Le Prevost, the character returns to radio in the first of four stylish new dramas. Reading the voice of Simenon is the novelist Julian Barnes.

As Simenon's centenary approaches in February 2003, this case from the 1930s evokes the Paris of Hemingway, and a touch of Dostoyevsky, in a city of jazz.
