Elisabet Brännström

Elisabet Brännström has been head of Bonnier Rights Fiction since 2013, and is since 2018 also head of Bonnier Rights Finland. Elisabet fell in love with literary agenting as a 21-year-old living in London, before going to university to study subjects she deemed suitable for the agenting profession: lots of literature, some languages and a sprinkle of psychology. Almost 10 years working in agenting and publishing in London followed, with more than five years at the world’s largest agency for translation rights, Andrew Nurnberg Associates, where she was senior agent and head of the Dutch and Scandinavian markets, as well as shorter stints at publishing houses, among them Head of Zeus where she was rights director tasked with setting up the rights department from scratch. Since 2013, when she moved from the UK to Sweden with her family to head up Bonnier Rights she has worked with internationally bestselling authors such as Håkan Nesser, Mari Jungstedt, David Lagercrantz & Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Kerstin Ekman, Tomas Tranströmer and more recently Gertrud Hellbrand, Magnus Dahlström, Lina Bengtsdotter and Maria Adolfssson, to name a few. Authors represented but not published in the Bonnier Publishing Group include Vidar Sundstøl and Kristina Hård.

Elisabet and Bonnier Rights are always interested in finding new talent in the fields of adult fiction and non-illustrated non-fiction written in the Nordic languages, with a focus on Swedish and Finnish. Please follow the submissions guidelines to submit your work for review.
