In the stretch …

… Literature's enduring hero: The Inspector Maigret novels will soon all be available in English - The National. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

… if pressed to choose an exemplar of the modern detective novel from among the dozens of contenders who could legitimately press their case, many readers would, I think, vote for the astonishingly productive and consistently compelling Belgian mystery writer Georges Simenon (1903-1989), creator of the everyman Parisian police inspector Jules Maigret.
