Hm, you should check your termcap/terminfo entries for your terminal.
Also, make sure screen's termcap/terminfo entries are installed.  It's
probably best to check that libtermcap isn't being used, it's nothing
but trouble.  Other than that I can't really say.  About the Swedish
characters, you need to check what LANG/LC_XXX variables are set in your
environment and their values.  Also check what ncurses (wchar_t enabled
or not) you have installed.

More information regarding these items necessary, before an answer can
be crafted,
