Well, here we go, my first puzzle. I hope it's not going to be very hard, but also not too easy. :-)

He knew that he's going to die, but when he was dying, he was very surprised.

Good luck.

Do all the "he's" refer to the same person?

He knew he was going to die -- soon? Later? Eventually?

Was he surprised to die? By the method of death? By who killed him? By the reason he died?

Did he die by foul play?

Did he die or was he killed? By natural cause, disease, poison, or violence?

Was he killed by a person or animal?

Did he have a terminal illness that was going to kill him, but was killed by a person before the illness took effect? No.

Was he executed? Maybe for SVV of execution, but rather no.

Sorry for that double post yesterday, but I can't delete or edit that post. :-(

No problem, I got it.

Did he die in the way he knew he was going to? Was he surprised at the time he died? If so, was it earlier than he thought? Later? Poison involved? Any illness?

Was another person involved in his death? Was another person present when he died?

Was the damage that killed him piercing, slashing or crushing? Was he killed directly or indirectly? Was the person/s who killed him close to him at the time?

Are location or time period relevant? Other people besides he and his killer?

Was he surprised that he died at the exact moment expected? Yope, this might be a bit confusing... he was not surprised by the timing of his death, but it was actually same moment he expected Was he surprised by who the killer was? No

A wild thought. Was he making a movie or acting in a play and was scripted to die but died in an onset accident e.g. Brandon Lee's death while making The Crow?

A wild thought. Was he making a movie or acting in a play and was scripted to die but died in an onset accident e.g. Brandon Lee's death while making The Crow? Yes! Thought I must admit that I didn't know about Brandon Lee, but according to Wikipedia it's something very similar to my story.
*************SPOILER***************
In my version "he" played in a play, in which he was supposed to be shot. He knew he is going to die, but no for real. But one time instead of blank, he was shot by a real bullet. That was very surprising for him. :-)
Difference between my story and Brandon's was that this was not an accident. He was actually murdered. And the murder was the one who replaced the bullet, so the person who shot him was actually innocent.

Great puzzle Viniter! Knew about Brandon Lee's death, but it never crossed my mind.

We've had at least one puzzle with a similar solution, and I can think of a couple mystery novels like it -- a military reenactor shot with a real bullet during a mock battle instead of with blanks.

Yeah nice puzzle Viniter. Don't you hate it when someone guesses wrong but are close enough to make it necessary to spoil the puzzle?
