Actually, this car has security system that prevent the trunk opened without using the master key. I often use this to lock my trunk. Just slid up the tiny lever upward to allow the trunk open from inside. the lever is on the back trunk (in the center, behind the Tail light) where the trunk door hook up with the lock system.

Sounds like the cable has broken on your latch!! and your trunk!! I would try putting your key into the rear hole and gettint the locking device to move around to see if you can get it to shut!!

Make sure it is not binding/sticking where you pull the release cable.
Drench the entire works in WD-40. Push it back and forth until it moves with no resistance.
Make sure the part that hooks onto the latch hasn't come loose enough to not slide over when it makes contact.
If that doesn't work, take the whole thing off. You'll have to anyway to replace it. Chances are with it disassembled you'll see what's wrong.

Lube it up well & try a screwdriver in latch, the same way it would catch on striker on body and see if it snaps in and holds, if it doesn't, keep lubricating latch and try again until it does. Work key position in lock as well, to make sure it is actually in the latch position & not stuck in open position.When/if it does, and still won't hold closed, then you need to loosen bolts at latch and adjust a little at a time until it does.
