Alcuni dettagli sulla prossima traduzione della Penguin per gli anglofoni

Maigret and the Dead Girl, Penguin’s English translation of Simenon’s Maigret et la jeune morte, will be available through Amazon.co.uk as of July 6, 2017. Both paperback and Kindle editions are being released.
Because the paperback and Kindle editions will not be available from Amazon.com until February 6, 2018, the opportunity for early delivery of the paperback from the UK to the USA will appeal to some.
In distinct contrast, July 6, 2017 holds as the release date for the following other Amazon sources: Australia Kindle; France paperback and Kindle; Germany Kindle; India Kindle; Italy paperback and Kindle; Netherlands Kindle; Spain paperback and Kindle.
Unfortunately, the later February 6, 2018 release date pertains to these remaining Amazon sources: Brazil Kindle; Canada paperback and Kindle; China paperback;  Germany paperback; Japan Kindle; Mexico paperback and Kindle.
Be aware the ISBN-13 for this new edition is 978-0241297254, which should facilitate searching for the book from various other sources.
Maigret et la jeune morte originally appeared in 1954. Inspector Maigret and the Dead Girl first appeared as its English translation in 1955, and some later editions came out as Maigret and the Young Girl. Its translator was Daphne Woodward then, and the translator for this new Penguin edition is Howard Curtis.
The original work was the 73rd in Simenon’s order of publication, and this work is the 45th in Penguin’s modern series of translations.
This novel interested me for the mystery related to an unknown young girl. Maigret’s investigations often involve young females, and this one has been murdered. The novel also features a lot of interplay between Inspector Lognon and the Chief Inspector. The former’s nose is out of joint and the latter’s disposition is variably one of anger and sympathy.
