Henrik Edward Larsson MBE (-svˈhɛnrɪk ˈlɑːʂɔn; born 20 September 1971) is a retired Swedish footballer and current manager of Landskrona BoIS.

Larsson, who was born in Helsingborg, Sweden, began his career with Högaborgs BK as a youth player. As a senior, he moved to Helsingborg, where he was one of the key players when they qualified to Allsvenskan 1993. Larsson then moved to Feyenoord for four years before leaving for Celtic in 1997. He won four league titles in seven years with Celtic, scoring 242 goals in 315 competitive matches, before moving to Barcelona in 2004, where he won two league titles and the 2006 Champions League, in which he assisted both of Barcelona's goals as they won 2 1 against Arsenal. Following the expiration of his contract at Barcelona, Larsson returned to his hometown club of Helsingborg, and joined Manchester United on a brief loan spell between January and March 2007. He announced his retirement from football on 20 October 2009.

Larsson played for Sweden in three World Cups and three European Championships and is a former captain of the national team. Larsson ended his international career with 37 goals in 106 matches.

Larsson has hinted he will make a move into professional floorball in Sweden, having already turned out for Helsingborg in the Swedish floorball league, but this is unlikely due to his recent appointment as Landskrona manager.
