I'm having problems to get URLs with special characters in biber/biblatex to work

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}          
\usepackage[swedish]{babel}      

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{csquotes}
\usepackage[natbib=true,backend=biber]{biblatex}

This bib entry for example. biber cannot run with the URL, but if I take it away it works fine. I have other URLs set up in the same way and the work just fine, because there aren't any special characters in them.

@ONLINE{biodieselboard,
howpublished = "European Biodiesel Board",
title = " Statistics",
note = "Hämtad: 30/05/2012", 
year = "2012"
url = "http://www.ebb-eu.org/stats.php#",
}

Does anyone know a solution to this?

Don't you need a comma before the URL field? –  Paul Stanley Oct 30 '12 at 14:02
    
    
Which error message do you get? I would use {...} instead of "..." for the values of the fields. Your error message should disappear after adding the missing comma for field year: year={2012}, (see comment Paul Stanley) –  Kurt Oct 30 '12 at 14:31

If the bib entry is correctly input, there's no problem in compiling it:

@ONLINE{biodieselboard,
howpublished = "European Biodiesel Board",
title = " Statistics",
note = "Hämtad: 30/05/2012", 
year = "2012",
url = "http://www.ebb-eu.org/stats.php#",
}

Notice the comma that was missing after the year field.
