The way I heard it from my Norwegian colleagues is i (as in mint), kk (like the C's in soccer), e (like in ever).

Ikke should be pronounced like "ik-ker". If you are still confused try listening to the words being said and try to replicate it.

Is there really an 'r' in 'ikke'?

No /r/ in "ikke", unless this is a strange dialect I can't remember I have heard before.
