One of the world's most successful crime writers, Georges Simenon has thrilled mystery lovers around the world since 1931 with his matchless creation Inspector Maigret. In The Bar on the Seine, Maigret must visit a prisoner he arrested and bear the news that his reprieve has been refused and he will be executed at dawn. But when the condemned man tells Maigret a story, his investigations lead him to the Guinguette à Deux Sous, a bar by the River Seine, and into the seamy underside of bourgeois Parisian life.

The Washington Post - Patrick Anderson

The Bar on the Seine (1931) and The Hotel Majestic (1942)…are solid police procedurals, but beyond that they are charming and sometimes magical evocations of a Paris now long vanished.
