Pasting this into the python console works fine for me - both on Windows and Linux. On the command line you have to make sure that you're actually using python3 ad python2 doesn't support non-ascii identifiers (ie. on OSGeo4W by running call py3_env.bat. On Linux you might need #!/usr/bin/env python3 is python 2 is otherwise used).
