Superdong200 and rah4010 have their facts wrong IMO. Or maybe this is how they have it in England.
Here in South Africa, in a S 40 2006 (right hand drive) the second fuse box is in on the passanger side, under the glove compartament. The cigarette lighter fuse is located in the bottom row, third one from the left, it is blue and is a 15 A.
I will be uploading a picture to sustain my claim and to give further advice to would be lookers

It's under and behind the glovebox.
The black panel has clips like on a gameboy battery compartment, with that removed, you still won't see fuses. There's two skrews near the hinge (on the outside of the glovebox), turn these counterclockwise with your hands. The fusebox will swing down.
The cigar lighter is a blue 15A fuse on the left side closest to the driver's seat.

Cell phone chargers commonly blow the fuses at the power points. It seems that our charger adaptors do not match the socket properly, and the positive part of the charger hits the negative of the socket, resulting in a blown fuse. If you have a charger, and it works, leave it in the socket. Don't take it with you. Repeated insertions of the adaptor to the socket magnifies this issue.

Most likely just replace it. You could pull the fuse and then use a small screwdriver to try and pull the tabs inside the receiver in toward the center a little. It could be that repeated insertion and extraction of the lighter or accessory plug has bent them outward enough that they're not making sufficient contact to power what you plug in. If that doesn't work, replace it and then put the fuse back in.

I don't own a volvo so no. Does the cd changer work ?
If not then that fuse needs to be replaced. as your dealer was kind enough to give you a hint (check the fuses on each side of the #30 fuse). and replace if necessary.
