Inspired by hard-boiled French writer Léo Malet's classic mystery novels, Nestor Burma (Guy Marchand) is a cynical private detective, a serial monogamist and an inveterate saxophone player. Burma is the owner and sole operator of the Fiat Lux Agency in Paris, investigating murders, missing persons, kidnapping and extortion cases in every arrondissement of The City of Light. It's a tough job, but Burma's just the man for it - with more than a little help from his lovelorn secretary, Hélène, and his cat Rifif
