About the Author:

Georges Simenon (1903-1989) was born in Lie`ge, Belgium. As a young man he worked as a baker, journalist, and bookseller and published his first novel at seventeen. He went on to write more than two hundred novels, becoming one of the world's most prolific and bestselling authors. His books have sold more than 500 million copies and have been translated into fifty languages.

From AudioFile:

The uniqueness of French lifestyle and police procedure is apparent as Inspector Maigret assists a pickpocket who is suspected of murder. Throughout his delivery, Andrew Sachs does a wonderful rendering of Simenon's clever psychological twists. He presents a variety of characters in a most singular manner. Who is this outstanding narrator who deftly handles this French mystery? Andrew Sachs is an Englishman best known for playing Manuel (from Barcelona) on "Fawlty Towers." Yet again, he rises to the occasion. S.G.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
