Les nouveaux mystères de Paris (1954-1959), Léo Malets fifteen-novel detective series inspired by Eugène Sues nineteenth-century feuilleton, almost achieved the goal of setting a mystery in each of the twenty Parisian arrondissements, with Nestor Burma at the center of the action. In Burma, the détective de choc first introduced in 1943s 120 rue de la gare, Malet, considered the father of the French roman noir, creates a cultural hybrid, bringing literary references and surrealist techniques to a criminal milieu. Michelle Emanuels groundbreaking study is particularly insightful in its treatment of Malet as a pioneer within the literary genre of the French roman noir while making sure to also focus on his surrealist roots. Against the archetypes of Simenons Maigret and Christies Poirot, Burma is brash and streetwise, peppering his speech with colorful and evocative slang. As the readers tour guide, Burma highlights Pariss forgotten past while providing insight to the Paris of (his) present, referencing both popular culture and contemporary issues. Malets innovation of setting a noir narrative in France serves as a catalyst for further change in the policier genre in France, including his contemporary Jean Amila, the néo-polar of Jean-Patrick Manchette, and the historical roman noir of Didier Daeninckx.
