In Paris M would have had his trusted team to call on, Lucas, recently promoted to Inspector, Janvier, Torrence, and all the boys in Criminal Records and Forensics....

Janvier had been shot in the chest, taken to Cochin. He had been alone on the street since 7:00. ... Apart from Lucas - his right hand - Janvier had always been his favorite inspector. He had been with M as a youngster, like Lapointe now, and he still sometimes called him "young" Janvier. "Albert," his wife cried out.... It was 9 years since Janvier had introduced M to his chubby-faced fiancée, whose cheeks dimpled when she laughed, and now she already had that sexless, too-serious look... M called Mme.

Janvier was ill. Lucas too. The inspectors were going down in batches.... M asked if Aillevard were in, but he hadn't come in yet, though Janvier was back. His kids all had the flu. [1956-ECH]

M was annoyed that Janvier, who for the first time was in charge of a major case, had concealed too much from the press. [1956-AMU]

M had once said to Janvier, one night when they were crossing Pont-Neuf returning to the Quai des Orfèvres, that the most frustrating cases are often the ones that start out seeming run-of-the-mill.... M looked around for who to bring with him to the Hôtel George-V. Janvier was there, but working on the robbery with assault. He called to Lapointe to come, and told Lucas where they'd be.... M wondered whether to call Janvier, as well as Lucas and Lapointe, but he lived outside of Paris and would probably take too long finding a taxi. [1957-VOY]

Janvier and Lucas were playing cards, something they did less than three times a year. M asked them if they'd seen Xavier Marton leave, but they hadn't noticed. M had Janvier go to the Grands Magasins du Louvre to look for Marton, pretending to be a customer.... M had Janvier and Lucas go to the Magasins du Louvre, for Janvier to point out Marton to Lucas, who would follow him....

M met Janvier outside the door, who said Lucas had arrested two young men in the robbery of a branch bank in the 20th. They were at the house of the mother of one of the boys. The other had been hiding under the bed and the mother never new. The son 18, friend 20.... M had asked Janvier to trace the call, but he was unsuccessful.... Janvier said he knew the way [to Chelles] as he'd once gone there for lunch on a Sunday with the wife and kids. [1959-ASS]

M chose Janvier to accompany him to the Foreign Ministry at the Quai d'Orsay. [1960-VIE]

Like Janvier, Lucas and a score or so of M's men, Aristide Fumel was of the old school.... M had once overheard Lucas telling Janvier, then a newcomer to the Préfecture, "When he's in a brown study it doesn't necessarily mean he's in a bad temper. [1961-PAR]

Janvier was on vacation, and Lucas had come back the day before, hadn't yet returned to work. [1961-BRA]

Lucas asked M if he should leave Janvier at the Crillon, and M said not too late, that someone should be sent to relieve him....

M sent Janvier out with Nicole Prieur's photo, to the Clou Doré to show the waiters, and around the neighborhood.... Janvier had a small car. Lucas was thinking of getting one.... M told Lucas and Janvier he'd been put on leave. [1964-DEF]

"M's longest interrogation", 27 hours, was still being discussed. During that time the waiters from the Brasserie Dauphine never ceased bringing up beer and sandwiches. Lucas and Janvier had participated.... Janvier was leading the investigation of the jeweler's windows burglaries. The last one had been on Thursday, Boulevard du Montparnasse.... Janvier told M the car used in the jewel robbery had been found in a side street in Les Halles.... Janvier had been working with M ever since he'd joined the PJ.... M sent Janvier to go down to the Central Police Station and bring back Fernand Barillard. [1965-PAT]

Apart from his closest collaboarators, like Lucas, Janvier, Torrence, and, more recently, Lapointe, Dr Pardon was M's only friend.... Two black cars pulled up, Janvier and Lapointe. [1966-NAH]

Janvier was wearing a light suit which M had never seen beforem, though it was only the 15th of March.... M had Janvier drive him to the Boulevard de Grenelle to meet François Ricain.... M told Torrence to have Janvier come in to take notes while M questioned François Ricain. [1966-VOL]

Janvier relieved Lapointe at the Émile Parendon's. [1968-HES]

They got into one of the little row of black cars parked in the forecourt, with Janvier at the wheel.... Janvier said he'd spent Sunday at his sister-in-law's. There was a fair in the market place and the children spent a small fortune shooting at clay pigeons. [1968-ENF]

M told Janvier to come in after he'd finished what he was typing. Asked if there was a car free in the car-park and had him drive him to the Rue Popincourt, near Rue du Chemin-Vert....

Janvier and Torrence had taken their holidays in July. M would have taken Janvier with him, but it was essential to have someone in charge at the Quai des Orfèvres who could be thoroughly relied on and who was capable of acting on his own initiative. M was surprised to find Janvier at the office when he called on his return from La Baule. There'd been an armed robbery in a post office. Janvier was the only one whom M regularly addressed by the familiar tu, though occasionally he did so to Lapointe, the most junior of the officers. [1971-SEU]

M had lunch with Janvier at the Brasserie Dauphine. Janvier's wife was at her mother's.... M called his office and spoke with Janvier. He said Dr Bourdet had called.

Lapointe was typing, Janvier was looking out the window and Lucas was on the phone. Janvier was not getting any younger either - he had a promising pot belly. He told him to watch Nathalie Sabin-Levesque, and to have Lourtie relieve him in the morning. [1972-CHA]

Janvier, Mme. Couldn't leave the children on their own to go to Cochin, so she left them with a neighbor, Mme. Dambois, whose husband accompanied her.
