Problems with a scandinavian alphabet on a Debian Linux

I am using a Debian Linux system at home and for a while I have been struggling with a major annoyance. Namely, when writing any Finnish text (or Swedish text for that matter), I am in need to produce the letter 'ä'. However, when I press the key 'ä' what appears on my GNU- Emacs screen running in an X-window is 'ae'. Now this sounds to me like mapping non-US characters to US replacements. But at the same time the rest of the scandinavian alphabets are produced properly, i.e. I get 'åöÅÄÖ' properly to the screen. Only the lower case 'ä' is behaving in a strange way.

Unfortunately I can not tell exactly when this strange behaviour started, but I have never seen it before during the 15+ years of ahppily using GNU-Emacs. The version of Emacs I am running right now is 23.1.1.

My guess is something is misconfigured during an upgrade, I just do not know what. Any clues are highly appreciated.

Best regards,
