**WARNING – Major Spoilers Ahead for Money Heist**
The Bank of Spain is proving to be a dire situation for the Professor and the rest of the heist gang, as Money Heist returns to Netflix for Part 5.
The Professor has been captured by Sierra, leaving the suited-and-booted gang without a master escape plan, and the army is closing in around them as well. For fans of the bearded robber Helsinki, we discuss whether the character survives the events of Part 5.
Does Helsinki Die in Money Heist Part 5?
- No, fans will be relieved to know that Helsinki does not die in Money Heist Part 5, but that doesn’t mean he leaves the Bank of Spain unscathed.
In the penultimate episode of Part 5, the Professor makes his own escape from captivity. As Sagasta’s military breaks in through the roof, a grenade is set off causing an explosion. Helsinki gets caught in the middle of the explosion and his leg becomes trapped under a fallen marble statue.
As the soldiers open fire on the gang, Palermo, Bogotá, and Rio reach the injured Helsinki who is trapped, and the latter suggests that they amputate his leg. Palermo, whom Helsinki has a romantic connection with, refuses to do anything so drastic and instead opts to use a beam to lever the statue off of Helsinki’s leg, whose femur, tibia, and knee are broken.
Helsinki, the practical tank of the heist group, narrowly escapes the harrowing events of Part 5, but will luck continue to be on his side?
Helsinki’s Money Heist History
Helsinki, whose real name is Mirko Dragic, has been a prominent robber in the assault on the Royal Mint and the Bank of Spain.
His main job throughout the show was to watch over hostages, while his banter continued with his cousin Oslo and sparks surrounded his on-and-off fling with Palermo.
Born in Serbia and a former soldier in the Yugoslav Wars, the second season of Money Heist had Helsinki perform the difficult task of killing his cousin Oslo, as he was in a vegetative state.
