Lanner was born in Gothenburg. He turned professional in 1981 and qualified for the European Tour on his first visit to Qualifying School. He was a member of the European Tour until 2001, with just a couple of breaks when he failed to retain his card, and his best Order of Merit finish was nineteenth in 1987. He won three times on the main tour and four times on the second tier Challenge Tour, as well as picking up several wins in non-Tour events in his home country.
