"The Fixer" is a 1966 novel by Bernard Malamud which is based on the true story of Menahem Mendel Beilis, an unjustly imprisoned Jew in Tsarist Russia. The notorious "Beilis trial" of 1913 caused an international uproar that forced Russia to back down in the face of world indignation. The trial is fictionalized using a very similar story line. The book won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1967.

The book was later adapted into a film.
