Erika Lehmann (1917–?) was a spy for Nazi Germany during World War II.

By most accounts, she was born in Oberschopfheim, Germany. Lehmann learned English as a child from her British mother (her father was German). During the Second World War she served in the German Abwehr. She undertook at least two espionage missions in English-speaking countries during the war: one in England and one in the United States. Most factual details concerning Erika Lehmann are recorded in documents held in Russian archives. Three novels have been written about Lehmann by author Mike Whicker.
