I can use ÅÄÖ when the label is created and it display it correctly but then i use gtk_label_set_text() to update the text, it stops the word when the swedish characer occurs. Looks something like this ...

Make sure the string you're trying to use as a label text is valid
UTF-8. If you got it from a file or any other external source, use
g_locale_to_utf8[1] or some other conversion function to convert it
from the source encoding (Which probably is ISO-8859-1 in your case).

Basically, *all* strings that are passed to GUI elements needs to be
valid UTF-8, or else you'll see errors like the one you got.
