Dagens Nyheter (About this sound listen ; DN; Swedish: lit. "today's news") is a daily newspaper in Sweden. It is published in Stockholm and aspires to full national and international coverage.


DN was founded by Rudolf Wall. The first issue was published on 23 December 1864. The format was completely changed from the classic broadsheet to tabloid on 5 October 2004.

DN is operated from the so-called "DN-skrapan" (the DN skyscraper) in Sweden. This was completed in 1964 and was designed by the architect Paul Hedqvist. It is 84 metres (276 feet) tall and has 27 floors, none of which are underground.

In 1996, the entire enterprise moved to its current location on Gjörwellsgatan, which is adjacent to the old DN Tower.[2] The newspaper Expressen is also located in this building. Both papers are owned by Bonnier Group.[3]

The paper has the largest circulation of Swedish morning newspapers, followed by Göteborgs-Posten and Svenska Dagbladet, and is the only morning newspaper that is distributed to subscribers across the whole country. In 2013, the print edition of DN had a circulation of 282,800, reaching 758,000 people every day.[4] The web edition, DN.se, had on average roughly 1.5 million unique visitors per week during 2013. Opinion leaders often choose "DN" as the venue for publishing major opinion editorials. The stated position of the editorial page is "independently liberal".

Dagens Nyheter on 17 April 1912: "The great catastrophe of the Ocean: The Titanic sunk".
