In this year’s first issue of Företagshistoria, we put the spotlight on the auditors’ important assignments. We dove into the archives of PWC Sweden, kept with us at the Centre for Business History, to learn how the English audit firm first came to Sweden to bring order to the chaos that Ivar Kreuger left behind after his death in 1931. The auditors worked for nine months to try and bring order – and one of the results was a change to Swedish audit laws.
We also cross borders ourselves, to tell the story of an early trading company that connected Sweden and Iceland. And we take a look at some of the business-related world heritage sites.
