What does "He nipped in through a side door." mean? Especially I don't know what "nipped in" mean?

    "In" refers to the room or building he has entered. "To nip" means to move very fast, in this case. He he darted through a side door.

    Vincix has defined it well. I think it's a British expression: I don't hear it in the U.S.
