In contacts app, you would expect to find a special character after its normal version. For example the german letter ö directly after o, at the moment entries with the letter ö are arranged after z.

logical as long as your native language doesn't use those "special" characters. Swedish uses å, ä and ö. They come after z.

In the German alphabet you would expect that yes, but in the Finish alphabet this is normal.

How to solve that is currently under investigation: See https://together.jolla.com/question/4564/contact-search-alphabet-grid-should-provide-not-only-english-letters/#post-id-7362

ok, so it has to depend on the selected language of the system.
