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 rooted 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 (The Malexander murders). 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[edit]

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