An omnibus of four early Inspector Maigret titles by Georges Simenon is $2.99 in the US

An omnibus of four early titles in the Inspector Maigret series by Georges Simenon is on sale at both Kindle and Kobo US for $2.99. This is a nice price even if you only need a couple of the titles, because most Maigret titles (with the exception, probably of the first one, Pietr the Latvian), don’t go on sale all that often in the US. There are also supposedly some extras, like first edition covers, in the omnibus.

The Maigret books are among the worst for having multiple titles, which often don’t seem to have much in common, so here’s a list of the books in the omnibus, with alternate (English) titles based on the ones provided by SYKM.

  • Pietr the Latvian, apa The Strange Case of Peter the Lett, apa The Case of Peter the Lett, apa Maigret and the Enigmatic Lett
  • The Hanged Man of Saint-Pholien, apa The Crime of Inspector Maigret, apa Maigret and the Hundred Gibbets
  • The Carter of ‘La Providence’, apa The Crime at Lock 14, apa Maigret Meets a Milord, apa Lock 14
  • The Grand Banks Café, apa The Sailor’s Rendezvous, apa Maigret Answers a Plea

Note that, like many Maigret books, this has a bunch of alternate titles. It’s also been published as The Strange Case of Peter the Lett, and The Case of Peter the Lett, and Maigret and the Enigmatic Lett. Whew!

  4. If you missed the sale price on the omnibus of early Simenon/Maigret titles in the OP, here’s your chance to pick up one of the books on sale individually. The blurb says The Hanged Man of Saint-Pholien, apa The Crime of Inspector Maigret, apa Maigret and the Hundred Gibbets, is the third Maigret title, but SYKM says it’s the fourth, and I usually go with SYKM 😊. In any case, it’s $1.99 right now at both Kindle and Kobo US.
