Lars Norén

Lars Norén (born 9 May 1944) is a Swedish playwright, novelist and poet.[1] His plays are realistic and often revolve around family relations and the impoverished and routed at the bottom of society.[2][3]

Career[edit]

His first publication was a collection of poems - Syrener, snö (Lilac, snow) in 1963.[1]

Norén's play 7:3 became a centre for controversy, after the murders of two policemen in Malexander in 1999 (Malexandermorden). The culprits had received furlough from their incarceration at Österåker Prison to participate in Norén's play.[4]

He was a Sommarvärd on P1's "Sommar" on 19 June 2005.[5]

Norén was director at Folkteatern in Gothenburg between 2009 and 2011.[1]

Awards and honors[edit]

Norén received Aftonbladet's literary prize in 1971. In 2003, he won the Swedish Academy Nordic Prize, known as the 'little Nobel'.[6][7]
