    The stranger knocked on the door - independent I swallowed hard - independent (" and " is a coordinating conjunction) as I opened it - dependent (" as " is a subordinating conjunction that joins an independent clause with a dependent clause) This sentence contains 2 independent clauses and a dependent clause making it a compound-complex sentence. Just like ucreategames said, and I agree :)
