It is "THE man's book", so why is it not "mannens boken"

If you put both in the definite, it's the same as doing so in English: "The women read the man's the book", and it's the same error. Here, mannen is already in definite.

But it says the MANS book and the other one says the COOCKS book so that is why it is wrong
