Photos of Lars Norén.
Lars Norén was a Swedish playwright, novelist and poet.
His plays are realistic and often revolve around family relations and the impoverished and routed at the bottom of society.
His first publication was a collection of poems - Syrener, snö (Lilac, snow) in 1963.
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.
Norén was director at Folkteatern in Gothenburg between 2009 and 2011.
