THE 50 MOST DANGEROUS COMPANIES IN THE WORLD is a new eye-opening non-fiction title by experienced investigative journalists Hannu Sokala and Juha-Pekka Raeste. It covers 50 companies that comprise a large part of global market forces and by large determine what kind of a world we all live in.

The book was published in January to excellent reviews and has already sold out two print runs, with a third on the way!

We are now very happy to announce that the Swedish rights for the book have now been sold to Lind & Co! Previously the title has been acquired by Scolar in Hungary and Newton Compton in Italy!

The new, longer English sample now also includes chapters about Google, Gazprom, Deutsche Bank and Disney.

This book immediately caught my attention and we are proud to be Raeste’s and Sokala’s Swedish publisher. We constantly read about some of the corporations in the book, like Google or Amazon, others, like Hon Hai, Tencent and Zhōngguó Yāncǎo Zǒnggōngsī, the world’s largest tobacco business, are unknown to most of us. We really look forward to the release and hope that this thrilling, frightening and enlightening work will reach many readers, since we all need more knowledge about the ever-expanding global conglomerates and their impact on our future on this planet.
– Anders Gustafson, Senior Editor, Non-Fiction, Lind & Co, Sweden
