>From btxdoc, which is part of texlive:

"you must place the entire accented character in braces; in this case either 
{\"a} or {\"{a}} will do. Furthermore these braces must not themselves be 
enclosed in braces (other than the ones that might delimit the entire field or 
the entire entry); and there must be a backslash as the very first character 
inside the braces..."

Thusly: Tr{\"a}ger

But I admit it's not easy to know that, bibtex documentation is a real mess, 
and Oren Patashnik appears to suffer from a real disease which prevents him 
from writing clear sentences and easily parsable documents.
