Swedes reading fewer newspapers

Newspapers are shrinking by the thousand, show new figures from the newspaper statistics body TS. Swedes are now more interested in receiving their news on the internet.

Last year, TS reports that the total number of newspaper copies printed in Sweden fell by 4.6 percent.

Tabloid Expressen, including supplements, is the biggest seller with 228,000 copies, 34,300 fewer than 2011.

Aftonbladet and Dagens Nyheter and Dagens Industri no longer take part in TS surveys.
