Malet’s American-style first-person narration is another departure from Simenon’s French model. If Malet has a formula, it is the complacent daily routine of his Fiat Lux agency interrupted by a new client whose seemingly mundane request for service somehow connects to a murder in the same arrondissement. 56 This is the basic plot of every Nestor Burma mystery: when he finds himself outside his second arrondissement office to meet a client in his or her milieu, Burma stumbles onto something he did not mean to see.
When caught spying on an FLN meeting, Burma tells the leader that his identification papers are made with pork, “et vous devez l’avoir en horreur” (Enquêtes, 2: 433). His rude and often ignorant comments might not make him more endearing, but they prove him knowledgeable of his times. Malet presents a flawed figure as a literary character, as if to argue that the postwar reality is just as worthy of literary attention as more heroic times. The new 50 From Surrealism to Less-Exquisite Cadavers detective does not have to be noble, or even free of prejudice; in creating an antiheroic detective concerned with current French issues, Malet opens the door for a generation of French writers eager to change the status quo of detective fiction as well as of literature and of culture in general.

That the two stories of “crime” and “enquête” can coexist in a detective novel is paradoxical for Todorov, which he dismisses by labeling the story of the crime as a story of absence.
