In 2013 Penguin Classics embarked on an ambitious project: to publish all 75 of Georges Simenon's Maigret novels in new English translations by a squad of 10 translators, complete with covers by photographer Harry Gruyaert. In January next year the project will be complete with the publication of Maigret and Monsieur Charles, translated by Ros Schwarz.

To celebrate this unique publishing achievement, Penguin is offering one Crime Club reader the chance to win a complete set of all 75 books, from Pietr the Latvian to Maigret and Monsieur Charles.

Closing date to win the books is December 6 2019. All entrants must be UK-based and the winner will be picked at random. The prize will be sent after 9th January 2020 when the final book is published.
