Pronouncing k?

I have a question, i know that k should be pronounced like russian щ before front vowels, that happens in words like Kött, Kyrka... but why does that not happen in the middle of the word: parKen, tänKer...?

The rule doesn't apply to unstressed syllables after the first one in a word. :)

    An excellent question. I often wondered that myself.
