The sentence seems to be pronounced in a way which neglects the last word (det), is this the correct pronunciation or is this pronunciation wrong?

It is correct. Because of consonant mutation, the "r" in liker and the "d" in det create a new sound called a voiced retroflex stop /ɖ/, which is why it sounds different.

Okay, I had to guess what the last word was, while knowing that there had to be a last word.

Should "He likes that" be an alternate?

"He likes that" would be "han liker DET/DEN", where det/den is stressed.
