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.
