Train rout planner for Sweden:

Transfer time by train from the major airports (ARN/GOT) is approximately 3 hours. The other option is to fly to Gardemoen (OSL) in Norway, and then take a bus or train via Oslo. Flights to OSL tend to be affordable, so it may even be cost effective in combination with a rental car (approximately a 3 hours’ drive to Karlstad).
