  • 10/09/15--06:46: Subscribing With One Click
  • Dagens Nyheter offers friction-free subscribing with new system developed together with Klarna.

    DN subscribe

    Subscribing to Dagens Nyheter has taken a new twist: You can now become a subscriber to Sweden’s No. 1 daily newspaper online with one click, with your payment debited to your account automatically. The content payment system, which the paper has been developing with popular e-commerce payment service Klarna over the past year, is unique. “With a one-click payment system, we have as little friction as possible for people to subscribe,” says Pär Roosvall, Chief Consumer Officer at Bonnier News, the business area to which Dagens Nyheter (DN) belongs.

    So far, the new way of subscribing has been a success, with DN gaining 5,000 new subscribers a month since the new payment system started.

    Readers can subscribe online directly via dn.se or once they’ve passed the six-article limit for free reading, they are prompted to subscribe. Online subscriptions are available on three levels, from basic to premium. And at the premium level you get an expanded package that includes for the first time business daily Dagens industri and on-demand film and TV service C More.

    “We will continue to develop the payment system, improving it and making it even better for our subscribers and subscribers-to-be,” says Roosvall.

    Bonnier companies Adlibris Group and TV4 Group launch common e-commerce initiative.

    Kökets favoriter

    Adlibris is one of the top e-commerce companies in the Nordic region. The TV4 Group has one of the strongest market positions in Sweden when it comes to food and baking content. Now together they're launching the Swedish e-commerce site Kökets favoriter - kitchen favorites. It's a new online shopping site where foodlovers, drink enthusiasts and amateur bakers find all they need when it comes to kitchen utensils, cookware, baking accessories and table settings.

    "People are extremely engaged when it comes to cooking and baking but within e-commerce it's still a small segment," says Julia Reuszner, head of category sites for the Adlibris Group. "With Kökets favoriter, we aim to create an inspiring store with a broad appeal, strong brands at competitive prices, fast delivery and with a range focused on color, design and quality. We've focused on developing a pleasurable shopping experience for the consumer."

    "Kökets favoriter is the first release in a comprehensive food initiative for TV4," says Camilla Everberg, business area head for the food segment at the TV4 Group. "Together with Adlibris, we've given birth to a strong and inspiring e-business, and TV4 is breaking new ground. We're also building a whole new ecosystem around food in order to strengthen our entire food offer for consumers. With an integrated holistic solution for advertsiers, we also hope to improve the impact for them. Our goal is to create the leading and most inspiring food experience on every platform with inviting content, products and services that will take users from inspiration to shopping."

    A wide range of international and Swedish brands are available on the site, including Global, Stelton, Iitala among many others.

    The Irvine, California-based Bonnier Motorcycle Group has launched a new in-house marketing agency, QuickShift.

  • 10/22/15--03:48: Ready for Reading
  • Top tips for kids’ books from Bonnier’s in-the-know editors.

    Next week, Sweden celebrates the fall school holiday week – but this year it’s been renamed the Reading Holiday Week, Läs Lov, under a campaign from book publishing group Bonnierförlagen together with others. To celebrate – and help parents prepare – we give you reading tips from some of our top editors, together with a bonus: 12 top reading tips from Johan Unenge, author and illustrator from Bonnier Carlsen, reading coach and spokesperson for the Swedish reading organization Läsrörelsen, which is also supporting the campaign.

    Ricky Rapper and the NighthawkThe Ricky Rapper series

    “I warmly recommend Finland’s most popular children’s book hero, Risto Räppääjä or Ricky Rapper as he’s known in English. The newest book in the series is Ricky Rapper and the Nighthawk, coming out also as a film in February 2016!” Anna WarrasEditor/Children’s Books and Juveniles, Tammi, Finland

    Schneeriese

    Schneeriese 

    Recent winner of the German Children’s Literature award in the youth category, given out at the Frankfurt Book Fair, Schneeriese means snow giant. “There is no better way to tell the story of an unfulfilled love!” Anne BenderEditor-in-Chief, Carlsen, Germany

     

    Monster Nanny

    Monster Nanny

    Mörkövahti [Monster Nanny] is a new children´s classic: Where the Wild Things Are meets Mary Poppins and My Neighbor Totoro in contemporary Finland.” Sanna UimonenEditor/Children’s Books and Juveniles, Tammi, Finland

     

    Kepler 62: Book Two

    Kepler62 Book One: The Call and Kepler62 Book Two: Countdown

    “Authors Timo Parvela from Finland and Bjørn Sortland from Norway, together with Finnish illustrator Pasi Pitkänen, have created a fascinating world in this series.” Marina JohnsonEditor, WSOY, Finland

    Bonus: How Do I Get My Child to Read?

    Tips from Bonnier Carlsen author-illustrator Johan Unenge.

    1. Read yourself. Show them it’s fun.
    2. Bedtime story. That’s where it starts.
    3. Don’t be a snob. Reading doesn't have to mean Dostoyevsky.
    4. Don’t nag. Reward instead.
    5. Don’t forget audiobooks.
    6. Find out if popular movies are available in book versions. Often helps.
    7. Read the same book then compare opinions.
    8. Recognize that time flies. Your favorites can be hopelessly outdated (what do your kids think of your dance moves, huh?)
    9. Look at it as an investment. Better reader as a child = better future.
    10. Do some digging. What are your child’s tastes? You wouldn’t read a book you didn’t like, would you?
    11. You don’t need to finish a book if you don’t like it. Start a new one.
    12. Pray for a #networkfail.

  • 11/04/15--03:12: ENT for Entertainment
  • Swedish network TV4 has a new online initiative: the multi-channel network ENT. 

    ENT logo

    ENT is a talent network that brings together Sweden’s best content creators on digital platforms and helps them grow and develop both in terms of content and business, offering the expertise and backing of Sweden’s No. 1 commercial TV station, TV4.

    For the TV network, ENT is a way to reach younger viewers – 12–34-year-olds versus the 15–64-year-old audience of TV4 – on the platforms they prefer, like YouTube. It also allows TV4 to offer advertisers new tailored ad solutions for even further and more focused reach.

    Already, ENT has signed up musical artists and comedy group De Vet Du (which translates to: you know it), one of Sweden’s biggest YouTube phenoms with millions of views, and the popular Instagram account Språk för alla (language for everyone).

    “We’re going to be seeing a lot of new wonderful talent at TV4, we expect to have 50 by summer,” says Maria Wiss, who is in charge of ENT. “A lot of new content will be launched, mainly by the talent themselves on their own platforms, but also in projects and formats that we initiate, for example in comedy and beauty. And of course a lot of smart and well-done business collaborations with our advertisers!”

    Jesper Buchvald to be CEO of Denmark-based magazine publisher Bonnier Publications.

    Jesper Buchvald

    Bonnier Publications has appointed Executive Vice President Jesper Buchvald as new CEO, starting February 1, 2016. Buchvald will take over from current CEO Michael Cordsen, who earlier this year announced he would retire.

    Bonnier Publications is one of Denmark’s biggest media companies, with business activities in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and the Netherlands. Its popular brands include Science Illustrated, Bo Bedre (better living) and idenyt (new ideas). The business is based around magazines, but now also comprises a substantial digital component.

    Buchvald has been a member of the management team of Bonnier Publications since 2002, with various areas of responsibility in both print and digital.

    Lars Dahmen, who in January will become head of Bonnier’s Magazine business area, says: “Jesper Buchvald is the perfect person to lead one of the Bonnier group’s most well-run businesses into the future because he represents both continuity and innovation. He has demonstrated the latter through his work in the digital field in recent years. With Jesper Buchvald at the helm, Bonnier Publications is well equipped to continue with its highly profitable magazine publication business while extending the digital business at a rapid pace.”

    Buchvald sees the recent striking changes in media consumption habits as an exciting opportunity: “Bonnier Publications will develop its strong brands and positions in line with the demand of both consumers and advertisers. We have a solid foundation in this respect due to the fact that we work in several markets and have direct contact with our customers. At the same time I see our employees and organization as having both the determination and the ability to succeed.”

  • 11/30/15--02:59: Big Win for Bonnierförlagen
  • All three of Sweden's August book prize categories went to books published by Bonnierförlagen imprints.

    August Prize 2015 winners  Jessica Schiefauer, Rasmus Bjerkander, Karin Bojs and Jonas Hassen Khemiri (Photo: Evan Pantiel)

    Sweden's most prestigious book awards, the August Prize, went to the same publishing group for all three of the award categories for the first time: Bonnierförlagen.

    "It was a fantastic evening," said Daniel Sandström, editorial director for Albert Bonniers förlag, in an interview about the award ceremony to Swedish book trade paper Svensk Bokhandel.

    Karin Bojs of Albert Bonniers Förlag won Swedish Non-Fiction Book of the Year for Min europeiska familj – De senaste 54 000 åren (My European family - the past 54,000 years). The jury wrote: "An unusual and comprehensive family chronicle, where DNA provides new knowledge about Europeans' extremely mixed origins. It's a surprising history painstakingly explained by a stubborn journalist with the help of the latest dizzying scientific advances.  Seldom have 54,000 years passed so easily and so learnedly."

    Swedish Children's Book of the Year went to När hundarna kommer (when the dogs come) by Jessica Schiefauer, published by Bonnier Carlsen. The jury wrote: "A year passes. The year that Ester and Isak meet. When Isak's brother, Anton, falls into a spiral of hate, swastikas and violence. And a boy is murdered. Jessica Schiefauer's young adult novel tells how easy it is to be drawn in, of the wish to belong. It's also as much about love, of loving so completely that it becomes destructive. The language is poetic, tight and flows easily, like the water that witnesses the events of the book. A language polished with care. In order to explain the horrendous."

    Tipped to win beforehand, Jonas Hassen Khemiri, published by Albert Bonniers Förlag, won Swedish Fiction Book of the Year for his novel Allt jag inte minns (Everything I Don't Remember). The jury wrote: "How did Samuel die, and why? Jonas Hassen Khemiri’s portrayal of the deceitfulness of memory and testimony is as enthralling as a thriller. But the novel is also a love story and a tale of violence, unforgivable betrayals, and the power of economics. An unconventional narrative structure where several different voices paint the portrait of the protagonist. All written in a sophisticated, toned down prose, where the shadowy existence of undocumented immigrants and criminals collide with the sunny world of privilege in a ruthless and hectic Stockholm."

We will concentrate our activities on developing our digital business, such as the Katsomo video-on-demand service.”

    Henri Caddeo has been named new CTO for Bonnier Broadcasting. With broad tech responsibility for the business area, he will even further connect technology, user experience and business so that the technology is considered as attractive as the content.

    Henri Caddeo

    Henri Caddeo, currently CTIO for Swedish digital TV, broadband and telecom provider Com Hem, will start in spring 2016 as CTO (chief technical officer) for Bonnier’s business area Broadcasting. He will have broad responsibility for technology for the entire business area, and will coordinate and develop the technology organizations within the TV4 Group, SVOD service C More and news production company Nyhetsbolaget in Sweden, as well as TV network MTV in Finland.

    “I’m excited that Henri has decided to work with us,” says Casten Almqvist, head of the business area and CEO for the TV4 Group. “His main role will be to build a high-quality technology organization for the future, where the technology is as attractive as the content, and where we talk as much about technology and user experience as we do about programming and sales. With his strong track record and broad experience working in the intersect between business and user experience, as well as between traditional technology and the online TV world, I can’t imagine anyone better to take on this role.”

    The job includes moving, coordinating and developing the technical capabilities and culture within Broadcasting.

    “The transformation that the media industry is undergoing currently is driven by modern technology, which makes possible new user behavior and puts the end customer in a whole new focus,” says Caddeo . “There are boundless possibilities for players who are successful in this change, while those who don’t take part will see declining business. Bonnier Broadcasting has both the ambition and the possibility to successfully make the change. So when Casten asked if I wanted to be part of this and lead the change, there was no question about my saying yes.”

  • 12/09/15--02:16: Brage Prize Winner
  • Cappelen Damm author Lars Saabye Christensen's book Magnet wins Norway's most prestigious book prize.

    Magnet by Lars Saabye Christensen

    On Tuesday the Brage Prize was given out, the top book award in Norway. Winner for fiction was Lars Saabye Christensen's book Magnet, published by Cappelen Damm.

    The jury wrote: "With Magnet, Lars Saabye Christensen delivers a typical Lars Saabye Christensen novel, but not exactly. A wellspring of ideas, it is serious writing. What starts out as a childhood novel and a love story, changes shape and soon becomes a well-written tome full of references and social criticism. With a penchant for odd protagonists with quaint names, the author takes us to another world. The themes are serious, yet there is something comic in the seriousness, both in the formulations and observations. With heavy themes and easy language, the dialogue masterfully brings the characters forward for the reader. And Saabye Christensen's period references are all deliciously recognizable. Meanwhile, the author gives ample space for reflection. The protagonist compromises what he wants because of love, but what are the consequences in the long run?"

    This is the second time Saabye Christensen has won the prize; in 2001 he won for his novel The Half Brother.

  • 12/09/15--03:19: Speaking of Stories
  • Bonnierförlagen launches Speaking of Stories podcast: #SoStories.

    Authors Jens Lapids and Ryan Gattis

    The first episode of Speaking of Stories is out, a new English-language podcast from Swedish publisher Bonnierförlagen. One Swedish and one international author whose worlds somehow connect meet to talk about hot topics of interest to them both. The conversation starts with what the two authors have in common, but from there it can go wherever the moment takes them. No script, no musts.

    The first episode  features Ryan Gattis from the U.S. and Jens Lapidus from Sweden. Both write about gang culture and outsiders, but Gattis' stage is Los Angeles in 1992, while Lapidus books are set in Stockholm.

    "Every year, Bonnierförlagen brings a number of international authors to Sweden," says Stephanie Tärnqvist, project manager and executive producer for Speaking of Stories. "The podcast is a way of extending the excitement and inspiration from these visits. Finding the perfect match between two writers has been a fun challenge. We believe that listeners will truly appreciate the different pairings, which in some cases will be quite unexpected."

    Speaking of Stories is a collaboration with online retailer Adlibris. Henrik Johnsson is producer for the first episode, which is available at Acast and iTunes.

    "We at Acast are very proud that Bonnierförlagen chose us as a partner and distribution platform," says Öjje Holt, commercial director for Acast. "The concept is incredibly exciting and is a perfect match for our focus on premium content."

    The second episode will pair U.S. author Caroline Kepnes with Swedish author Denise Rudberg in a conversation about stalkers, social media and New York. The episode will be available in January.

  • 12/15/15--05:28: DN Junior for Kids
  • Two Swedish newspaper institutions come together in newspaper section aimed at kids.

    DN Junior

    Sweden's No. 1 daily newspaper, Dagens Nyheter, has just launched a new section especially for kids: DN Junior. 

    Published every Saturday, the new DN Junior section will feature news from the week including deeper analysis, as well as more entertaining articles. It's designed for kids to read alone or together with their parents.

    The new section is being done in cooperation with Kamratposten, the newspaper for children with a history nearly as long as Dagens Nyheter's

    "It's so exciting! We have a relatively large and loyal readership of about 150,000 children," said Lukas Björkman, editor-in-chief for Kamratposten (KP) in an interview in Dagens Nyheter in conjunction with the launch. "But outside that, people have a fairly vague idea of what KP is in 2015. This is a great opportunity to show them what we are. It's also a challenge. Two completely different ways of looking at the news coming together."
