    \begin{center}
\begin{tabular}{|p{3.35cm}||p{5cm}|l|}
\hline
\thead{Område} & \thead{Positive konsekvenser} & \thead{Negative konsekvenser} \\

\end{tabular}
    \end{center}   

And it produces this output:

Table

How do I get the text in the left column aligned like the middle column row 2? I use the {p{xcm}} command but i don't know how to align it as with "c", "l" and "r".

Is that something like that you want? I suppose you loaded the makecell package in your preamble. I added using hhline for better-looking \hlines and vlines (although only horizontal lines, as suggested by the booktabs package look still better). I also loaded ragged2e to have reasonable hyphenation in column, and cellspace for a less tight vertical spacing in tables.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{makecell, ragged2e}%
\renewcommand*\theadfont{\bfseries}
\usepackage{cellspace}
\setlength\cellspacetoplimit{4pt}
\setlength\cellspacebottomlimit{4pt}
\usepackage{hhline}
\newcommand\myhline{\hhline{|-||-|-|}}

\begin{document}

\begin{center}
\begin{tabular}{| >{\RaggedRight\bfseries}S{p{3.35cm}}||p{5cm}|l|}
\myhline
\thead{Område} & \thead{Positive konsekvenser} & \thead{Negative konsekvenser} \\
\hhline{:=::=:=:}
Arbejdsfordeling & Et nyt slags produkt giver næsten altid ny arbejdskraft & \\
\myhline
Infrastruktur &  & \\
\myhline
De fysiske ressourcer &  & \\
\myhline
Den offentlige sektor &  & \\
\myhline
NGO'er &  & \\
\myhline
Befolkningens levevilkår &  & \\
\myhline
\end{tabular}
\end{center}

\end{document}

No need of complicated settings:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[danish]{babel}

\usepackage{array,ragged2e,booktabs}

\begin{document}

\begin{center}
\begin{tabular}{
  @{}
  >{\RaggedRight\bfseries}p{3cm}
  >{\RaggedRight}p{4cm}
  l
  @{}
 }
\toprule
\multicolumn{1}{c}{\bfseries Område} & 
  \multicolumn{1}{c}{\bfseries Positive konsekvenser} &
  \multicolumn{1}{c}{\bfseries Negative konsekvenser} \\
\midrule
Arbejdsfordeling & Et nyt slags produkt giver næsten altid ny arbejdskraft & \\
\addlinespace
Infrastruktur &  & \\
\addlinespace
De fysiske ressourcer &  & \\
\addlinespace
Den offentlige sektor &  & \\
\addlinespace
NGO'er &  & \\
\addlinespace
Befolkningens levevilkår &  & \\
\bottomrule
\end{tabular}
\end{center}

\end{document}

If you really want a ruled table (which you don't, trust me), use the features by hhline. But never ever use double rules.
