I am having a hard time getting utf8 special characters like æ ø å out.

In my db con i have
"CharacterSet" => "UTF-8"
and it works on pages that dosent use the slim framework.

in my slim app, i have:

 $app->contentType('text/html; charset=utf-8');

and when i make my json data i have:

    $app->response()->headers->set('Content-Type', 'application/json;charset=utf-8');

but my special characeters are still not comming out right, what am i missing?
