Don't think so. The very end has vignette about a big-eared, blue-eyed beggar with a raspy voice.

Also, there are still bad guys around, Truls and Bellman.

He got shot in the head as well as the torso. Much as I want him to survive, did he load the gun with blanks?

Are you saying the big-eared, blue-eyed begger is Harry. Seems like his scar would've been part of the desscription

Any other thoughts on this!?

When the rat climbs on Harry, Harry's heart is still beating. I suspect Nesbo would not have included that unless Harry will return. But who was the beggar?

I believe he was wearing the bullet proof vest, which takes care of the shots to the torso. The head? Hmmmm.......

My first thought was the bullet-proof vest and that the head shot was a miscalculation but one that won't prove fatal. The follow-up revelation that the killing of Gusto was essentially unintentional, still leaves room for Oleg's redemption and a clue that the story will continue. The other obvious clue was Nesbo's need to plant the mysterious figure (and final "phantom") at the cemetery, in an otherwise unnecessary scene: clearly, Harry with the raspy voice from his neck wound and in need of his own resurrection. And let's be honest; Nesbo's still has a long career ahead of him, and he is not likely to kill the golden goose, let alone Harry.
