Leave it up to the French to craft a delectable Agatha Christie-style caper whose main characters include a famous literary critic, a deceased best-selling author, his bookworm daughter, an ambitious young publisher and an up-and-coming writer...Based on the 2016 novel by David Foenkinos — whose books Delicacy and Jalouse were previously brought to the screen — Henri Pick is an easily digestible and highly cultivated whodunit..
