How is it displayed incorrectly?  Do you see some other chars than what you
expect, or do you see empty squares?  If you see empty squares (i.e. chars
for which Emacs can't find a font), place point on one of them and then do
C-u C-x = which will tell you what this char is.

If UTF-8 is not auto-detected, try (prefer-coding-system 'utf-8).
Or if you don't want utf-8 to be your default and you know the the general
