About us

Bonnier Books brings together Bonnier’s ventures in the book industry across Northern Europe.

Bonnier Books encompasses independently run publishing houses and retail businesses, ranging from traditional and digital-first publishing to bookstores and a digital subscription service.

With a heritage stretching back to 1837, when Albert Bonniers Förlag published its first work, ‘Proof that Napoleon never existed´, Bonnier Books has grown to incorporate a wide variety of publishing houses and book retailers and services across Northern Europe. Originating from, and headquartered in, Stockholm, Bonnier Books’ publishing houses are currently present in Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Germany, Poland and the United Kingdom. The physical retail business is located in Finland, while the digital subscription service BookBeat is available in 30 markets across Europe.

We do not aim to be the biggest player in our industry, but we strive to always be the best at what we do. Focus, therefore, is important: we will never try to be average at a lot of things, rather we ensure that we are the best at some things. That way we can create long-term profitability.
