Les Inconnus dans la maison (The Strangers in the House) is a Belgian novel by Georges Simenon. It was first published in 1940 by Gallimard in Paris.

An English translation by Geoffrey Sainsbury was published in the UK in 1951. It was reissued by New York Review Books Classics in 2006 with an introduction by P.D. James.

The novel has been described as "wonderfully claustrophobic".[1] John Banville regards Strangers in the House as one of Simenon's finest novels, and "the quintessential roman dur: direct, spare, sensuously atmospheric, hypnotic in its realism, and honest in a way that few novelists would dare to be".[2]

A film adaptation in French was produced in 1942, followed by a 1967 English-language film later remade in 1997.
