International film star Bruno Cremer brings the beloved Parisian Inspector Maigret to life in this definitive series of filmed adaptations of legendary writer Georges Simenon's bestselling crime novels.

Against a backdrop of 1950's Paris and the surrounding French countryside these original feature-length films pay homage to one of the most brilliant detective minds of the twentieth century.
