It is not a Swedish name, so there is no specific Swedish pronunciation.

Or should it be /tO_Fmmy:/ /tɔ̂mmyː/? /ʊ/ is the normal value of short <o> in Swedish, but then in this recording Tommy sounds as if it was pronounced with /ɔ/, a short <å>.
It is normally approximately ['tɔmmʏ'sɞ:dɛr,bɛrj]. The letter <o> is very uncertain, so it can be /u/ or /ɔ/ or /o/ and if unstressed /ɛ/, /e/, /ə/.

The unstressed position makes it a short sound, and the double spelling is not for pronunciation but for meaning and origin, so <rss> is only one sound [ʂ] in the name Andersson. If you say "Anders son", then you might have [ʂs]. Morphologically, there should actually be three s in Andersson, since you have Anders+genitive-s+son, but the genitive of Anders is only Anders, so it does not happen.

Why have you bothered with those circumflexes for falling tone?
