CROWDS of people queued into the street to see crime novelist Jo Nesbo at the newly opened Waterstones in York.

Nesbo - the creator of the Norwegian crime series centred around detective Harry Hole - attended the signing in Coney Street.

He was signing copies of his new novel, The Son.

The new shop has relocated from High Ousegate to Coney Street, with a complete redesign taking in two floors, more than 7,000 square feet, about 30,000 books, and a children’s department with play area and slide.
