Recherche Fred Vargas désespérément

Thibaut Chatel

France | 2010 | 53 min
The archaeologist-novelist Frédérique Audoin-Rouzeau, alias Fred Vargas, invented Police Chief Adamsberg, a peripatetic cop in a crumpled coat who navigates his way through werewolves, plague victims and strange corpses. Such books as Have Mercy on Us All, An Uncertain Place, Seeking Whom He May Devour and This Night’s Foul Work have earned her the title of queen of the French detective novel. But Vargas herself remains in the shadow. This film tracks her down, interviews her close relations, her twin sister François Bayrou, her editors. A rough portrait of this mysterious writer gradually emerges.
