Maigret's Christmas

As I have decided not to read newspapers in local train, while commuting to work in the morning and evening, I have started reading book `Maigret's Christman'. It is collection of 7 short stories.

Georges Simenon was the most successful author of the 20th century, and the character he created, Inspector Jules Maigret, who made him rich and famous, ranks only after Sherlock Holmes as the world's best known fictional detective.

Georges Simenon was amazingly prolific writer. He wrote more than 200 books during his lifetime! About 103 of these books featured Inspector Maigret.

The full list of Maigret's books is here .
