Simenon / Maigret in Hungarian


 
1. The first Maigret novel translated into Hungarian - Le chien jaune (A sárga kutya) - was published in 1966.

2. From the late '60s until the '90s several novels were published in two series (Albatros, Black books).

3. The good news is that a publishing company has started to publish a new Maigret series. Around 20 titles have been published already. Most of them are new titles. Of course there are new translations and new edition as well. www.parkkiado.hu

4. The English TV film series with Micheal Gambon was filmed in Budapest.

Simenon was first published in Hungary in 1938: Le chemin sans issue (Hosszú út). This novel was published in the same year in France, as far as I know. In the '40s another four novels were published: Les inconnus dans la maison (A besurranók, 1941), Le bourgmestre de Furnes (A furnes-i polgármester, 1942), L'évadé (A szökevény, 1944), Le Quartier Negre (Néger negyed, 1946).

A few other Simenon novels were also published in 1970-71: Le bourgmestre de Furnes (new ed.), Il pleut bergere, Lettre a mon juge, Les anneau de Bicetre, Le chat, Le déménagement, Le testament Donadieu.

L'homme de Londres was published in the Maigret series in 1986.
