Norwegian phonetics

I've noticed that there's no phoneme /z/ in the Norwegian language, I mean there are no words with the sound /z/ in proper Norwegian, only in borrowed and foreign words. Am I right?
And I have also noticed that Morten Harket (a-ha) sometimes sings such words as 'losing' etc. with /s/ instead of /z/.
