It was never clear in your messages if you are able to search swish-e
directly from the command line and find the words with umlauts.

If that works, but swish.cgi doesn't work then it may be an issue with
either your version of Perl, or maybe the encoding used when sending
the query to swish.

You might turn on debugging in swish.cgi to log the query sent to
swish and make sure that it looks like 8859-1 encoding.

I think this is what you need:

    debug_options => 'command',
