You should 1st check with your colleagues as to what Union, if any, the company has a collective agreement with. Join that one for best representation with your current employer. If You want a more general Union that serves a lot of IT professionals, then if I am not mistaken that would be Unionen.

Unions are toothless tigers in Sweden. Thanks to schengen and globalization.

Like the others noted, Unionen is the one for those working in IT (I'm a member too).

Just to add some variety, I and most of my colleagues (except the non-techs like the ekonomi/HR people) are member with Sveriges Ingenjörer.
