It's a French loanword, so many people opt for a more French pronunciation. Please see my response to mepreston for further information.

Yes and no; you'll hear both pronunciations.

Språkrådet recommends pronouncing the 'ss', but allows for both pronunciations. To me, leaving it silent sounds better.

Are the end s's of "suksess" really silent?
