The French version of a spy spoof novel by actor Hugh Laurie topped book sales in France in March, according to book magazine Livres Hebdo.
The translation of Laurie's The Gun Seller, released in France in January, is called Tout Est Sous Controle or Everything's Under Control.
The book, first released in the UK in 1996, tells the story of an ex-soldier drawn into a Bond-style terror plot.
Laurie's US medical drama House is a big hit in France.
In 2007, Laurie - now 49 - was made an OBE by the Queen for services to acting.
The UK star has won two Golden Globes for his role as bad-tempered doctor Gregory House but has been part of the British comedy establishment for years.
He is best known in the UK for his work with Stephen Fry in both Jeeves and Wooster, and sketch show Fry and Laurie.
