RARA-AVIS: French hardboiled

Mr. Benz's recent post on the death of Jean-Claude Izzo reminded me of a question I've been meaning to ask here. Are any of those French Serie Noire books available in English translations? There's a fascinating chapter on them in Ed Gorman's BIG BOOK OF NOIR, enough to really whet my appetite, but, sadly, like many Americans I do not speak or understand another language. If I'm going to read Izzo or any of the others it'll have to be in translation.
