What do you man with "doing something wrong"? The expression is
syntactically correct, so I assume you mean that Mathematica doesn't give you
the expected result or no result at all.

The inner term can not be successfully summed by Mathematica 9 when the sum is
just extended over the k - so I assume trying to sum over both n and k
doesn't result either in a closed form...
