I see you've found a better solution, but just for your information: ?\366
is not "ö".  Recent Emacsen have improved the keyboard handling such that
the byte sequence coming in from the tty is more properly decoded into
a sequence of chars.  So maybe your problem was that you should have
now used:

  (keyboard-translate ?\ö ?\[)

of course, assuming the file in which the above expression is written uses
an appropriate encoding corresponding to the encoding used on your keyboard.

Admittedly, I can't remember in which order things like keyboard-translate
and keyboard decoding take place, so maybe I'm just wrong.
