From 1899 a newspaperman, writing political columns in southern Swedish newspapers. Månsson often used the pseudonym Dacke in his youth.

Månsson was one of his party's foremost and most colourful agitators, known for his drastic and often burlesque oratory. He belonged to the first generation of self-taught writers in the spirit of the new popular education, and with his firm roots in the Blekinge countryside, he preferred the historical novel as a means of expression: The Justification by Faith (1916) and Gustav Vasa and Nils Dacke (1 - 3, 1928-48). He also appeared as a historian, for example with The History of Migration (1937) and The History of the Viking Age (1939).
