LAKRIS by BÜLOW

A distinct black confectionary made from a plant root, liquorice is popular across Scandinavia – particularly the extreme salty version – but is less enamoured elsewhere. Danish entrepreneur Johan Bülow was determined to change that by re-imagining lakrids (the Danish word for liquorice) as a gourmet product, creating LAKRIDS by BÜLOW in 2007. His revelation was to coat liquorice in chocolate. Available in flavours including Coffee, Raspberry and Crispy Mint, the Salty Caramel is a stand-out choice for me. Resembling Christmas baubles, these bronze-coloured balls have a salty sweetness that complements the naturally robust flavour of liquorice.

Countdown to a killing deals with the fragility of the mind along with the many-layered complexities that accompany it.
