Oh, good call. I just pasted your code into the shell and it worked.
But then when compiling it into a file it breaks like you have.
Specifically, the UTF-8 literal in the source file is broken. This
suggests that the Erlang compiler doesn't like UTF-8 literals, and
sure enough, a quick google brought up a post:

Which references:

HTH,
