Sometimes the French like to end their books with the killer winning, just fair warning.

Nice is nice. And going to the top of the Eiffel Tower, or even being under it, is worth all the crap you get from Parisians.

Have you read the Jean-Louis St-Cyr and Hermann Kohler Investigation series? The author isn't French, but the stories take place in France during WWII.

i prefer metis and demis writers from around the world. but french literature is very under appreciated.

These comments are the perfect example of all Slog comments. We have, from end to beginning:
6) The troll, who doesn't seem to understand grammar
5) The response that seems benign on the surface but is actually trying to prove that the author of the comment is somehow better than the author of the post
4) The sexual comment, often by Mr. Poe
3) The rare and elusive helpful and non-threatening comment that has some value and makes a point
2) The sort-of random comment, usually stemming from a minor point of the post
1) The worthless (and, in this case, possibly spoiling) Will in Seattle comment.

@7 if only if i was and demis are sometimes considered to be part of the francophone world and have a relatioship with france that is interesting. what i meant is that from french literature i really like the metis/demis voice.

And yet, @7, if you read much French fiction (1), wrote it (2), or watched French films (3) not usually shown in the US, you'd realize I'm more right than most US readers will ever know.

1, 2, 3 - yes, it's true, I'm guilty of all 3.

If you haven't read Philippe Djian, he is one of my favorites. I am pretty sure he is translated.
Also, Amelie Nothombes and Alexandre Jardin are great fun !

I would definitely recommend Fred Vargas. Her books are clever, original and real pageturners. My favourite so far is pars vite et reviens tard, no clue what it's called in English.
