We are looking for a night train from Oslo to Malmo. Suggestions?

I looked up that route on http://www.sj.se. It looks like you need to go via Stockholm: Leave Oslo at 16:56, arrive in Stockholm at 21:50, leave Stockholm at 23:14, arrive in Malmo at 06:48.

That's a nearly 14-hour trip by a pretty indirect route. You can do it much faster and more directly (traveling via Goteborg, for example) if you take daytime trains.

There has not been an overnight train on that route for a couple of years. I'm guessing that Copenhagen might be your actual destination, anyway. Options are correctly laid out above for day train, overnight ferry, or flight.

Or you can drive. We did that once when our flight back to Copenhagen was cancelled by an ATC strike. The drop fee was horrendous, however!

We have friends with a summer home on the water a bit south of Oslo. I loved sitting on their porch watching the ferry to or from Copenhagen float by. Seems like it would be a lovely journey, even at night ( since daylight lasts so late). I have heard it can be quite a party scene on weekends, however.
