I would like to have lats like Bruce Lee, very wide, but not to thick. Can you recommend good exercises, please?

I think Bruce Lee's appearance of muscle is mostly due to his low body fat. It's mainly an illusion. Having some, even very little, muscle with body fat that low will make the muscles appear larger (wider) than they actually are. Just shoot for very low body fat and do some chin ups/pull downs for the lats.

A little known fact is that Lee mixed in heavy/agility bag work in on the non-lifting days. Most people think they can just run and lift to get a body like Lee. You can't. If you want the Lee-physique, you need to all 3. Do his lifting program M/W/F, do cardio every day (the more cardio the better, since it rarely consitutes overtraining), and do bag work on Tu/Thu.
Boxers tend to do similar routines, but they didn't lift as much as Lee did, nor probably jog as much. Dedication my friend.

Supplement your lifting routine with punching and lots of it.
Punch the heavy bag.
Punch the air.
Punch with very very light dumbells (2-5 lbs)
Punch the speed bag.
Punch your friends or siblings.
But remember not to fully extend your arm at full speed when shadow boxing or with weights in your hand as this can easily cause an injury.
This combined with a solid back routine and low body fat should get you closer to the lats you want.
