Anders Sjöqvist

Anders Sjöqvist has been a part of the book business since birth, as his parents were booksellers on the west coast of Sweden.  He has been with Forum Publishing for almost 12 years as an acquiring senior editor. His main focus is on non-fiction original and translated books, but he also works with fiction, and has been editor for a British crime list - Minotaur - for the last ten years.

Two years ago Forum Publishing turned 70. It was founded in 1944 by Adam Helms and has become one of the biggest publishing houses in Sweden, and has been part of Bonnier from the start. Forum has a rather commercial fiction and non-fiction list but during the last 15-20 years they have also published three Nobel Prize winners. Today they publish around 65 books a year.
