Yeah; this is one of the errors that is difficult to pinpoint: the error occurs where the closing brace isn’t :-}, and that is hard to locate...

Might be because the parser expects the the citation to end before certain other tokens pop up?

The closing brace without a corresponding opening brace is easy to spot.

As Dick said, these are errors that TeX itself either locates or can’t locate…
