      [SPOILER]

      As of May 1st, there's a way to get Oskar released without having to kill anyone or to pay anything, however, it requires a very high Charisma check. You must speak to Brem before you speak to Oskar (so the idea of buying him never even comes up) and then choose, in this order: "You have a 'pet artist?'", "'Protection.' It sounds a bit more like kidnapping.", then pick the Persuasion option. My character had a +3 to persuasion and the check was 17, so I'm assuming it's 20 without modifiers. If you do manage to pass it, Brem realizes he's probably putting the Zhent at risk by keeping Oskar there and will tell you to take the "moany bastard." If you go about it this way you still receive and complete the quest.
      Failing the persuasion check doesn't lock you out of finishing the quest because you can still offer to buy him afterwards. So, as long as you don't have a negative persuasion modifier, it's worth a shot (especially if you have inspiration to burn). In addition, you get approval from all your companions from this dialogue option regardless of whether or not you succeed.
