    VIENNA, Austria: Sweden narrowly beat Russia on Sunday in a nail-biting 60th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, winning its sixth crown in Europe’s annual anything-goes music extravaganza. Forty-one years after Swedish superstars ABBA took the title, chiseled Mans Zelmerlow won 365 points from voters and juries in 40 countries with his up-tempo crowd-pleaser “Heroes.” As the scores came through nation by nation via videolink to Vienna, it looked for a while as though Russian Polina Gagarina would take the title with her paean to world peace “A Million Voices.”
