Avoid 3rd party websites.

But SJ is a 3rd party website :-) But I believe foreigners have greater luck with buying tickets through SJ than with Öresundståg.

SJ trains are more comfortable but requires a change in Malmö.

Some (less than 50%) of the seats are possible to reserve in Öresundståg. If you don't want a seat reservation you can as well buy a ticket the same day at the station. The price is the same regardless of when you buy it.

As a Swede I would advice you to NOT use Öresundståg, cheap low quality traveling often crammed full of people like a subway in Tokyo, and with a huge risk to get stuck because of failure with electricity and other things. Last time I used them I was delayed over 2 hours, avoid them if you can. There is no Western European standard on these trains.

I would state that Magnus_Pettersson is a disgruntled passenger and that all train operators are at the same risk of suffering from delays and cancellations.

I also second that you should not use 3rd party websites and buy your tickets from sj.se or https://www.oresundstag.se/
