Why would you not place ikke between hørte and ham here?

Can the position of "dessverre" change in this sentence? For example, at the front of the sentence, or at the very end?

There are three possibilities that sound good:

Dessverre hørte jeg ham ikke.

Jeg hørte ham dessverre ikke.

Jeg hørte ham ikke, dessverre.

Can one say "Jeg hørte ikke ham dessverre", or is the word order here preferred?

Isn't it usually allowed to use han and ham interchangeably?

EDIT: Never mind, it was an audio exercise.
