The difference between Nordic Book and other

literature. Unlike other internet shops, we deal directly with Russian and Scandinavian
publishers to bring you a wide range of literature at reasonable prices from what is really
a very narrow specialist area.

disc or film you need from anywhere in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark or Iceland.
We also provide you with links to the Scandinavian press, useful Websites,
Scandinavian cultural and information centres, language courses and information about new
We are proud to offer our readers a wide range of literature on
all things Scandinavian: educational, scientific and fiction in Russian and Scandinavian
Here you can find books on history, politics, art, design, linguistics
and literature as well as dictionaries, original textbooks, audio books, music and films.
