Nicholas Le Prevost stars as the French detective in four new BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatizations

These new adaptations of classic stories find Maigret recreating four memorable cases for his creator Georges Simenon.

In 'Maigret: A Man's Head', a convicted man is allowed to escape, then followed by police investigating a double murder. Maigret finds himself entering glittering society and a war of nerves with a suspect. 'The Bar on the Seine' sees a condemned man telling Maigret about a riverside drinking hole where a murderer lurks undetected. Pursuing the clue, Maigret witnesses a death and discovers a much older crime...

'My Friend Maigret' finds Maigret investigating the murder of a tramp on the French island of Porquerolles - but he is hampered by the attentions of Inspector Pyke of Scotland Yard. Finally, in 'Madame Maigret's Own Case', when Madame Maigret makes a friend outside her dentist's office, she stumbles upon the resolution of one of her husband's most stubborn investigations.
