Glad you appreciated the novel. As I already said many times here on R-A, it's his masterpiece.
  As for the non-Maigret works, "romans durs" as he called them, you will find a very good and handy bibliography of translations in a short essay published in the UK (they mention the original French titles): THE POCKET ESSENTIAL GEORGES SIMENON (2003)
  Then you have also an interesting bio written by Patrick Marnham : THE MAN WHO WASN'T MAIGRET- A PORTRAIT OF GEORGES SIMENON, which has a good bibliography of Simenon's works, inclusive non-Maigret IIRC.

OK, so I am asking for a lot.

Best, Mark
