He died in 1989 in Lausanne, Switzerland, where he had lived for the latter part of his life.

Another entertaining read although Maigret is less credible when dealing with "foreigners". The Lognon character really does not deserve star billing.

I like to read the old Maigret books not as violent as the modern detective books , they are not page turners but a good read.
