Really? That seems confusing, to mark the start and end the same way. I'm a Swede and can say that in handwriting, citation marks are just two high little lines in the beginning and the end of the quote. When typed it depends on the fonts of the text, but they are usually both high-9:s. Sometimes the quote opens with high-6:s, I think. And guillemets (if you mean << and >>) are extremely unusual in Swedish texts. /Micke
