Nicolas le Floch

Nicolas le Floch, doubly an investigator with the King's Police and the Marquis de Ranreuil, solves crimes during the reign of Louis XV.

Une plaisante adaptation des polars en costumes de Jean-François Parot (...). Le mélange d'aventure policière et de chronique historique fait mouche, grâce à la reconstitution élégante du XVIIIe siècle et à l'humour subtil des ­dialogues qui associent expressions modernes et vocabulaire désuet mais très imagé.” – Télérama
