Created by Frank Harding (Léo Malet)
Before he struck gold with Nestor Burma, France's Léo Malett wrote several books featuring reporter JOHNNY MÉTAL (note it's an anagram of of Malet) who acted very much like an American-style hard-boiled private eye. Even the pseudonym he used, Frank Harding, sounds sorta American.
