Frédéric Dard (Frédéric Charles Antoine Dard, 29 June 1921 in Bourgoin-Jallieu, Isère, France – 6 June 2000 in Bonnefontaine, Fribourg, Switzerland) was one of the best known and loved French crime writers of the 20th century. Astonishingly prolific, he wrote more than three hundred novels, plays and screenplays, under his own name and a variety of pseudonyms which makes it very difficult to determine his exact output. He has earned his iconic status in France due to the wildly popular San-Antonio book series.
