(Posting non-ASCII characters to Usenet and expecting other people to
see what you see is inadvisable, for more or less the same reasons that
you're having trouble with PuTTY in the first place...)
What I see in your post is:
"Inst" A-tilde ampersand hash two nine eight semicolon "llningscentralen"
Is that really what you see on your screen? If so, then something other
than PuTTY is involved; PuTTY won't spontaneously generate HTML-ish
Have you tried UTF-8 translation? This is a multibyte encoding commonly
expected by many recent Linux distributions. If you're seeing multiple
characters where you expected one, it's likely that you need UTF-8.

If you haven't already done this, set Putty in
Configuration:Window:Translation:Character Set to "ISO-8859-1" or
If this doesn't help, check your system font (are the nordic characters
looking right on console?).
IMHO the best way is setting either locally or in i18n
LANG="en.US.UTF-8". This is what I prefer at least for the root account.
