All the three, Swedish, Norwegians and Danish are similar. In fact, norwegian (the bokmal) is a sort of a norwegian version of danish, if this makes sense. Norway was in a union with Denmark for like 4 centuries and the official language of the union (and thus of norway) was the danish. Then when they became independent they transformed the language to what it is bokmal. But it's still very similar with danish, perhaps more than with swedish. But all of the three I very similar at the end.
They are all germanic languages but dutch and german are west germanic while the scandinavian languages are north germanic.
