Dinner does not automatically mean the meal in the evening, the most precise translation to German Abendessen to English would be supper. Dinner means the main meal of the day, which can also be lunch. I assume that is meant in swedish middag, although someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
I think middagen is the definite way to say "middag". So, generally speaking, dinner is an object here, so they are eating dinner. While if you want to define it, like for example, "the dinner", you would go for middagen. -en in Swedish is the suffix to define masculine names (e.g.: man - mannen). It's just my best guess, it's my second day learning Swedish :)
