The Swede Is Alive

At the end the rope breaks and we see his body drifting off along the river which means Never Found the Body. And we already know he's damn tough to kill.

The series takes place in the same universe as Red Dead Redemption
And Cullen Bohannon is actually John Marston's biological father. The drink-happy scottish immigrant father mentioning in Marston's backstory was actually his adoptive dad. If anything, they do have a hell of a Generation Xerox: Both are sarcastic, morally ambiguous atoners who are The Fastest Gun In The West. Theye even dress alike.
