About Volante

Volante did a great job for my book in Sweden, and we thoroughly enjoyed our contacts with the publisher.

– Daniel Kahneman, Nobel Laureate and author of Thinking, Fast and Slow

Volante has done a remarkable job publishing my books in Sweden.  From translation to marketing, Volante is one of the best publishers I’ve worked with anywhere.

– Daniel H. Pink, author of When, Drive and To Sell Is Human


Volante is an independent publishing firm, literary agency and speakers bureau, based in the Old Town of Stockholm, Sweden. We mainly publish narrative nonfiction, but also works of fiction and children’s books. We usually say that we publish works and authors that would make a difference, and that would change the conversation.

Volante also consists of the imprints Bookhouse (management, self-development), Knopp (children), and 8tto (research).

Furthermore, we run Gamla stans bokhandel (The Old Town Bookstore), located on the street level where we have our office in a fantastic 17th century building.

The authors and speakers affiliated with us are mainly thought leaders in their fields. Some are associated with our division Speakers Net, for international key note speakers.

Rights to our titles have been sold to countries such as Brazil, Finland, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, South Korea, UK, and USA.

Volante was founded by Tobias Nielsén.
