Simenon and Justice: A New Book By Alexandra Fabbri and Christian Guéry @BellesLettresEd

A new book on Georges Simenon and law, available from Les Belles Lettres. The authors are judges Alexandra Fabbri and Christian Guéry, and the book is Simenon et la Justice, in the series Bibliothèque Simenon.

The book includes chapters on various parties in the French judicial system and analysis of whether Maigret, Simenon's famous police officer, is simply an officer of the law, investigating crimes, or engages in judging his suspects' actions as well.

Here is a link to an interview with author Alexandra Fabbri, discussing the book.  Both the book and the interview are in French.
