The PO Enquist Prize was a gift to PO Enquist on his 70th birthday in September 2004 from Norstedts and his option publishers around the world as well as the Göteborg Book Fair. The jury consists of PO Enquist and represents for his Nordic publishers Cathrine Bakke Bohlin (Gyldendal Norway) and Jakob Malling Lambert (Rosinante & Co Denmark) and Håkan Bravinger (Norstedts).
