The former Swedish Idol contestant led from early on in the voting at Baku, challenged only by Russia's Buranovo Grannies, Serbia and hosts Azerbaijan.
British entry Engelbert Humperdinck, who opened the contest with his ballad Love Will Set You Free, finished second from last - despite high hopes.
The 76-year-old said he "did the best for my country".
"I've had many highs in my career and Eurovision has been a wonderful experience," he said.
