Year and model of your Saab? Could the key simply be worn out? Has the key been giving you problems, even minor issues, before now?

Try rocking the steering wheel as you turn the key. If the steering wheel is putting pressure on the lock mechanism, it could be very difficult to turn the key. Also, some of these European cars have a shift interlock by-pass button that does interesting things to the ignition key cylinder when activated to allow the car to be shifted out of ‘Park’ when it is not running. If the button is still activated, this could be your problem.
