Malaise, Commissaire. Commissaire Malaise was created by the Belgian author Stanislas-Andre Steeman (Monsieur Wens) and appeared in Le Doigt Vole (1930), La Nuit du 12 au 13 (1931), and Le Mannequin Assassine (1932).

Commissaire Malaise is a Belgian police commissioner who is similar to (although he prefigures) Jules Maigret. Malaise solves his crimes through intuition and experience rather than deduction.
