Actually, there are planed high - speed lines connecting Stockholm with Gothenburg and Malmö, however there is no real cooperation in developing a new high - speed railway system together with norwegians and danes.

Planned is being used in the broadest of ways here though. There isn't really anything concrete at all just now.

SJ presented a new train, SJ 3000 today.
SJ's "new" train is based on Bombardier's Regina line designed for 200km/h (can be upgraded to 250km/h) and built to withstand Sweden's winter climate. It doesn't feature a lean into curves technology but is able to accelerate and decelerate quicker and is able to feed back energy to the power grid. The interior of the train is designed to better accommodate to people with movement disabilities.
It's also featuring a new infotainment system offering information on the trains stops and connecting trains. For entertainment you can choose a selection of featured movies or access to the internet and each chair have it's own power socket.
SJ 3000 is going to replace X2000 trains on medium length routes and the replaced X2000 sets will be used to fill in on high demand routes such as Stockholm-Gothenburg/Malmö.
The train is currently undergoing tests for approval but there are no dates when they're going to be used in public.
Here's a propaganda video showing the train in Swedish landscapes and Stockholm

Sweden are undergoing an exceptional increase in passenger traffic but the investment and reinvestment in new rail projects and maintenance hasn't been able to follow up in the same rate. Many routes in Sweden has reached maximum level of numbers of trains which makes the system extremely vulnerable of delays and cancelled trains due to tear power cables, signal malfunction etc.
There's an undergoing investigation on how to best solve the problem which is due to April 2012. Among the options is a new high speed railway.
Also in 2012 all of Swedish railway network is open to private competition which is further than any other country in EU (well from what I know).

Couple this with the announcement not too long ago of a big increase in the railway maintenance budget and hopefully we'll see the situation improve. I've been using SJ, UL and SL around the Stockholm, Uppsala and surroundings and I have found it to be reliable, comfortable and generally well priced. They also offer decent schedules to most cities even on Sundays considering the size of the population served. Even railway countries such as Japan have less frequent connections than one sees to such (comparatively) small cities such as Örebro so one has to consider this in the context of the population served.

I'm looking forward to Citybanan being completed. It should free up an awful lot of capacity given that 80% of the network passes through Stockholm at one point or another and the SL trains really do restrict traffic greatly.

Here's a propaganda video showing the train in Swedish landscapes and Stockholm
And an article


Today, the Swedish state owned rail company, SJ, launched its new flagship SJ3000 train which aims to speed up the official time taken by the current X2000 and withstand the harsh Swedish winter. It is expedited to enter service gradually when inspections and tests are completed.
The trains – which cost some Skr100 million each and expected to meet the tough requirements for the Swedish winters - will enter service in early 2012. Therefore from that initially from Stockholm to Östersund, Sundsvall, Gävle, Falun and Karlstad.
In total, about 20 new trains with 5000 seats have been on the parks waiting to start speeding the Swedish rail networks writes the train company in a statement. According to SJ, this is about Sweden's most modern and environmentally friendly high-speed trains - 30 percent more energy efficient than SJ's current hauled trains.
SJ is now carrying out its largest investment to date. Over six billion invested in new trains and also to brush up old ones. Today the trains officially tested to determine how it really stake up with reference to replace the X2000 when it comes at speed.
The new trains are said to have been built out of Regina Trains that has been operating in Swedish traffic for over ten years to date. SJ's managing director, Jan Forsberg, told Sweden Television that Bombardier has built trains that are promised to be safe in the winter.
“Bombardier has almost given us a guarantee that the new trains will cope with the difficult winter conditions that have has also brought Sweden the past two years.”
The idea was originally that SJ3000 would have begun to roll in August, but the work was been delayed and has been pushed to early 2012.
