Next month BBC First screens UK telemovie Maigret, the first of two tales based on novels by Georges Simenon.
Set in Paris in the 1950’s, Rowan Atkinson will play French detective Jules Maigret.
The cast also includes Shaun Dingwall, Leo Starr, Lucy Cohu, Aidan McArdle, David Dawson, Fiona Shaw and Rebecca Night.
An airdate for the second mystery has not yet been announced.
A serial killer is stalking the streets, five women are dead and people are afraid to go out after dark. The newspapers are rife with speculation and Chief Superintendent Maigret is without a lead and under great pressure. It is a story that sees the detective risk everything – his career, his reputation and even his colleagues’ lives to find the culprit.
Sunday at 8.30pm on June 12.
