Posted by David Lambert
Based on Georges Simenon's classic detective novels! "Gambon is terrific." - The Times (U.K.). Emmy nominee Michael Gambon (Harry Potter, The Singing Detective) is Jules Maigret, the "wonderfully entertaining sleuth" (Austin American-Statesman) at the heart of novelist Georges Simenon's beloved detective series.
Equipped with rigorous logic, uncanny judgment of character, and, of course, his signature pipe and fedora, Inspector Maigret relishes the challenge of solving any mystery. Filled with dangerous crimes and elusive characters from the villages of rural France to the alleyways of Montmartre, this series brings the most intriguing and complex puzzles from Simenon's anthology to the screen.
Broadcast on Masterpiece Mystery!, this complete collection features a strong cast of familiar faces, including Brenda Blethyn (Pride & Prejudice), Minnie Driver (Good Will Hunting), Barbara Flynn (Cranford), Jane Wymark (Midsomer Murders), Edward Petherbridge (A Dorothy L. Sayers Mystery), and Michael Sheen (Frost/Nixon).
The 4-DVD set with all 12 episodes comes to DVD next Tuesday, February 26th when Acorn Media releases Maigret - The Complete Collection. Priced at $59.99 SRP, you'll get every episode with English subtitles, plus an 8-page booklet featuring articles on Georges Simenon, Jules Maigret, and the television series.
