That would maybe be jämtländska, as Jämtland used to be a Norwegian region.

The Swedish taught here is a kind of Central Standard Swedish as it is spoken in the area around Lake Mälaren in what's considered mid-Sweden. Stockholm lies in the eastern part of this area, which then extends about halfway to Oslo.

It sounds pretty neutral to me, so I'd bet on rikssvenska or some central dialect.

A few nights ago, my Swedish lady changed to someone with a different accent, so confusing

Depends on what Norwegian dialect you're taking about. If it is Standard Norwegian, which is based on the Oslo/southeastern dialect, then the Swedish dialects of western Värmland and Dalsland are closest. Especially older speakers in rural areas share many features with that dialect of Norwegian.

I speak Norwegian as a second language, and I've never had any trouble speaking with Swedes.
