Your database probably has a utf8 default charset, and you're trying to define a latin1 character set in your table. Try changing the "DEFAULT CHARSET" part of your statement to use the utf8 character set for the database.

If your table is already created and you're getting that error during inserts / updates, then convert your table to utf8:

ALTER TABLE `evenemang` CONVERT TO CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;

You may need to do this for other tables, too. I'd always recommend using utf-8 over latin1 nowadays.
