Understand how Sweden truly works 

Being able to understand and interpret events in the country one is living in is important. While on the surface Sweden appears similar to other western countries, its business culture, political structure and decision-making processes can actually be quite different.

If you are interested in Sweden, but not fluent in its language, Mundus News is an efficient tool for monitoring Swedish news. It is also useful for those reading Swedish but in need of a concise news summary curated for professionals.  As one of our subscribers told us – “It’s like a little bulletin for the busy”.

Special elections offer

Sweden heads to the polls on 9 September. If you are interested in, or affected by the future of Swedish politics, you need information and insights during this period of change. We have therefore put together a special Elections Package with news and analysis for private subscribers. If you subscribe to Mundus News you receive our proprietary elections analysis for free.

Mundus News cost SEK 200 per month. You will receive the news for the duration of the period and, towards the end, we will contact you to see if you would like to sign up for an on-going subscription (which can be cancelled at any time).

Personal subscription to Mundus News

Sweden can be a hard place to get to know. Some expats report that they don't feel welcomed, and that making friends with native Swedes is challenging.  Investing 5 minutes in reading the news every morning helps you understand Swedish culture, the language, politics and business.

That is why we offer personal subscriptions to Mundus News for private individuals, and why every user receives a personalised app, helping them relate to Swedes around them.

Private subscribers may order Mundus News for SEK 200 / month. Payment is made by credit card on a monthly basis and the subscription can be cancelled at any time.

"All really good information in one spot. For someone who is fresh to the Nordic society, and always on the lookout for local economic information from a Scandinavian perspective, Mundus is a invaluable tool. It has helped me in several ways, with a notable example of when and where to buy a property, information I would not have found otherwise."
