Året Runt (Swedish: All Year Around) is a weekly women's and family magazine published in Malmö, Sweden. Founded in 1946 it is one of the longest-running magazines in the country.

History and profile[edit]

Året Runt was started by Åhlén & Åkerlunds förlag (today Bonnier AB) in 1946.[1] During the initial period the magazine targeted rural readers.[1] Gunny Widell served as the editor-in-chief of the magazine.[2][3] Another family magazine, Vårt Hem, merged with Året Runt in 1951.[1] Året Runt began to include a TV section from 1960.[1]

Bonnier sold Året Runt to its rival company Aller Media due to poor circulation levels in the mid-1980s.[1][4][5] The magazine is published by Allers Förlag AB on a weekly basis.[6] The headquarters of Året Runt moved from Stockholm[7] to Malmö in January 2016.[4] The magazine featured interviews with both famous personalities such as Ingmar Bergman[8] and other women figures.[6]


Året Runt sold 60,000 copies in its first year, 1946.[1] From 1951 to 1994 it was the best-selling family magazine in Sweden.[1] The magazine reached its peak circulation in 1955 with 498,000 copies[1] and also enjoyed higher levels of circulation in the 1960s and 1970s.[9]

The circulation of the magazine was 181,300 copies in 2006.[10] Next year the magazine became the fifth best-selling magazine in Sweden with a circulation of 172,700 copies.[11] Its circulation was 153,200 copies in 2011.[12] In 2014 the magazine sold 135,200 copies.[13]
