The map looks really weird it has some sharp edges if you look on the pictures. What did I do wrong. Is it something with the UV mapping. I did the smart uv

Your texture resolution is too low for the detail you're trying to capture.

Furthermore, you have some very steep angles and these typically can mess up normal mapping.
