A second look at some of the week’s best stories from online and print

If you're anything like us, your week may sometimes feel like a blur. 

That's why The Copenhagen Post is trying something different on Sundays. We will take a deep breath, a step back and a second look at some of the stories that made up the past seven days both in our printed weekly newspaper and online. 

As a reminder, you can also hear more from us – if you so wish – via Facebook and Twitter, and via our new daily newsletter, The Evening Post. And if you have a hard time getting your hands on a physical copy of the Post, why not sign up to have it delivered to your inbox? If you haven't read them yet, you can download this week's Copenhagen Post and InOut guide today. Heck, you even get The Weekly Wrap as an email each week.

Here are just some of the stories from the week that was:
