Scandinavia travel - two weeks from Copenhagen to Stockholm and back again. Train or car rental?

My wife and I are planning a June trip to Sweden and Denmark (and hoping to make it to Norway to visit friends if possible.) We're trying to decide which is more feasible for getting between Copenhagen and Stockholm and points in between: train vs car rental? Neither is cost prohibitive for us, but obviously we'd like to economize where we can.
I like the idea of the train because, well, it's Europe and I love taking trains in Europe. Such a humane way to travel. But I like renting cars because you have flexibility and freedom and can stumble upon quaint little towns that you wouldn't otherwise see.
It's looking like I can get a two-week rental at the Copenhagen airport for less than $700 (and I realize that gas is way more expensive there - that's already factored into my thinking.) It also looks like a one-way train ticket from Copenhagen to Stockholm is more than $200.
