I don't find a way to make it print oe for ö. Could anybody please
advise what is the correct way to do it?

==> main.py <==
#!/usr/bin/env python
# vim: set noexpandtab tabstop=2 shiftwidth=2 softtabstop=-1 fileencoding=utf-8:

import sys
from unidecode import unidecode
print unidecode(sys.argv[1].decode('utf-8'))

==> main.sh <==
#!/usr/bin/env bash
# vim: set noexpandtab tabstop=2:

./main.py Schöön

$ ./main.sh
