Sometimes the steering wheel locks, and you have to turn both the steering wheel and key at the same time. That might help.

Do you have another key you can try? also the saab is known for getting debrie in the ignition since in most saabs its in the center console. If thats the case you might be able to clean it out with some compressed air.
