Help needed with overnight stop from Stockholm to Gothenburg

We will be visiting Sweden for one week at the beginning of June 2011 and hiring a car for a couple of days for the journey from Stockholm to Gothenburg. I can't decide whether break the journey up with an overnight stay lakeside in Karlstad (or similar) or do the journey in one day and have overnight stop north of Gothenburg on one of the archipelago or coastal towns - any advice would be appreciated, thank you.

I don't have any advice on hotels etc, but if you want to get to Gothenburg as fast as possible, the best route is via Jönköping. (But perhaps you want to see something special in Karlstad?)

I would choose to stay one night north of Gothenburg instead of choosing an overnight stay in Karlstad. There are plenty of wonderful places to stay all over the archipelago area.

If you are to make it to Stockholm to a reasonable pace I would recommend Marstrand since it is close to Gothenburg and you might be able to have a full day sightseeing and still be able to go the fastest way possible to Stockholm the next day (which isn't through Karlstad). If this doesn't matter I would head for Smogen, the islands of Orust and Tjorn or if you're into UNESCO World Heritage sites, Tanum/Vitlycke with its amazing rock carvings.

Some inspirational links:
