CHAPTER 1 OF 2
Hunched up in an old raincoat, with the ubiquitous felt hat, he attempts to the best of his ability to solve relatively complicated mysteries. Travelling about on a moped, this lover of white coffee and buttered sandwiches suffers from a rare form of absent-mindedness and is only remotely connected to his famous predecessors. Luckily, Babette, his fiancée, is there to watch over him. This energetic young lady acts as the guardian angel of the dreamer Jérôme. Contrary to those investigative "Supermen", Jérôme K. Jérôme Bloche has a tender sense of humour and only aspires to a peaceful life: not an ideal situation for a private detective.
