Frank Arnau (March 9, 1894 Vienna - February 11, 1976 Munich) was the pseudonym of a German crime fiction writer, born as Heinrich Schmitt. He was the son of a hotel manager and began his literary career as a newspaper journalist. With the political ascent of Hitler, the avowed opponent of national socialism emigrated in 1933, first to France, then in 1939 to Brazil, where he lived until 1955. There he was further active as journalist and freelance writer. After his return to Germany he worked as a freelancer for Stern magazine. Arnau wrote over one hundred books and was president of the German league for human rights. He wrote stage plays, novels, detective stories and critical studies about society and the law system. In 1934 he described the ascent of the Nazis in his novel Die braune Pest (The Brown Plague).
