After falling ill with covid-19, Lars Norén passed away last winter.

This weekend it's time for an auction where a collection of things owned by the playwright will go under the hammer.

- Internationally, it is common to sell collections from famous people such as Yves Saint-Laurent or David Bowie, says Anders Rydén, vice president at Bukowskis.

In total, there are 175 items that Norén urged his relatives to sell before he passed away.

Among other things, the desk that was Norén's workplace when he wrote most of his works is sold.

The interest in the assets has so far been great.

But a famous person's possessions do not always have to result in large sums, says Anders Rydén.

- Had it not been for a special home or special aesthetics, I do not think it would have worked.

There must be a thought and a soul in the home and the collection for it to be a result, says Anders Rydén.

The auction "Lars Norén - thing" takes place at Bukowski's 8-17 October.
