Didier and the anchorite
Series: «Les cahiers noirs»
© 1997 - COD.: CN010697

It is only recently that Chief Inspector Agnès Didier has been in charge of the crime squad in Paris. But the choice was not hers, for the Chief Constable is absent, so Didier had to take control of a group of men, who mistrust her from the outset. All of them immediately called her Chief Constable, perhaps more out of irony than real conviction. However, being a strong woman, she immediately has a flattering success with the Refus murder, that of an astrologer, and thus wins over the esteem of her colleagues…

Didier and the little Babette
Series: «Les cahiers noirs»
© 1998 - COD.: CN070298

Perhaps soon-to-be Chief Constable Agnès Didier would never have imagined that one day she would have found herself confronting something that really disturbed her. A police officer expects anything and everything from criminals. Maybe, this time she was too optimistic in the belief that she could overcome every adversity, whether psychologically or in her inner self. It is only near the end, let us say, when the games have finished, that Didier realizes that the case has profoundly altered her. She is not able to recover her self-assurance or balance, the very qualities that all of her colleagues and superiors had constantly admired…

Did he die of natural causes or was he murdered? The question can be permitted if, in consequence, many other people have vanished into thin air. Have they fled, disappeared or been killed?…

What comes around, goes around
Series: «Le monde de Boulot»
© 2004 - COD.: MB130304

Boulot, himself, appears to be a strange individual, yet upon closer examination, he does not seem so different to the people who surround us. What is certain is that the world in which he lives, is not full of mysteries, but of plenty of life experience. Experience that he has acquired by himself, and in contrast to his often-satiated fellow citizens, he knows what it really means to have to make his bread and butter everyday without being ensnared by the stimulus of consumerism. There is certainly one difference: the rules that govern him. Are they better than ours, because of being simpler, more understandable and fast? Especially when confronting the world of crime?…
