During renovations on their new house, the owners were surprised to discover a small box concealed in a wall.
When they managed to open it, they found that it contained a number of bank drafts. The find was worth more than one million kronor.
The buyers are now suing the deceased former owner’s estate for a reward.
In a summons application submitted to Lund district court the new home owners maintain that they have a right to a reward corresponding to 15 per cent of the bank drafts’ value, according to Sydsvenskan and Skånska Dagbladet.
