Chief Inspector Gamache series by Louise Penny

Chief Inspector Armand Gamache is the main character in a series of mystery novels written by Canadian author Louise Penny. The series is set around the life of Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of Sûreté du Québec, the provincial police force for Quebec.

In order of publication these are the titles in the series. Louise Penny intended these to be self-standing so you can read them out of sequence (as I have in fact). However to get the full effect of the character development it would be best to read in publication order.
