It's that time of the week again, when we take a step back and give a second look to some of the stories that made up the past seven days both in our printed weekly newspaper and online. 

Here's a look at the week that was:

- If PM Helle Thorning-Schmidt thought that the scandal that cost the justice minister and the PET boss their jobs couldn't get any worse, she was wrong. The PM was dragged into a parliamentary hearing on Friday, where she denied any role in a cover-up. Her colleagues in parliament disagreed, and slapped the PM with 'a nose' – an official reprimand. 

- Denmark sadly found itself in the middle of a major internationally story when a 51-year-old Danish tourist was gang-raped and robbed outside of New Delhi. Three men have been arrested thus far

- Our cover story this week looked at the debate swirling around both the content and funding of Danmarks Radio

- With long waits, prank calls from doctors and a backtracking on stated goals, the new emergency phone line 1813 has been nothing short of a fiasco. 

- In immigration news, it was reported that the number of family reunifications exploded in 2013 while the number of asylum seekers living in centres has fallen drastically.  

- Comedian/actor Casper Christensen found himself in the news for all the wrong reasons after his comedy site poked fun at a woman who was assaulted at Christensen's nightclub

- Others in the Danish showbiz world had a much better week

- Our sport feature this week examined the future of Danish cycling
