Emibas is an index made from registrations in the Swedish parish to go to a foreign country. It is about 75% complete.

There is another index called the Emihamn database, made from registrations with Swedish port police before leaving Sweden to go to a destination outside Europe.

The above family wasn't headed towards Minnesota, although they still might have gone there later.

I don't see the husband, however.

I suspect that Sven Nilsson (despite the information from Emibas) left earlier in order to find a home and a job, and later sent for his family.

First name: SVEN
Last name: NILSSON
Age: 36 Gender: M
Parish: LINDERÖD County: L (Kristianstad)
Title/Note: ÅBO (a type of farmer)
Port: MALMÖ
Date: 1888 04 06 (April 6)
Destination: TEKAMAH NE

Since this name (Hofstrand) is apparently not unique, you will need to do a lot of U.S. research to compare full birthdates, the year of emigration from Sweden (or Norway), and so forth. I've had a lot of luck with Swedish American church records at the Swenson Swedish Immigration Research Center, censuses, obituaries, etc.

You are lucky they lived in Minnesota since there were state censuses in addition to the federal censuses. There are death indexes and marriage indexes and (I think) birth indexes too.
