Review - Reinventing Cato by Barbara Elsborg

My rating:

After a few disastrous relationships, Cato decides to avoid romantic entanglements, never spending more than a night with people he meets in bars, often not even knowing their name. But as midnight approaches on New Years Eve at a party he'd rather not be at, Cato resolves to become a better person, to “reinvent” himself. Vigge is not quite out at work, where he's a police detective. He doesn't trust easily and has some rather heavy baggage from his childhood.

Several months later he still has to keep a tight lid on his anger, which is made all the harder when said brother announces plans to marry the ex.
