SOURCE: hood release cable is broken
Is there any part of the cable inside the cabin that you can pull with a pair of pliers? I suggest that you try that. You may need to disassemble it from the pull handle to make that work.

probably a overstretched cable pull, or defective latch, i had the same problem with my truck. pull hood relese a couple times, and go to hood, give it a love tap with your fist abouve the latch ontop of the hood, if that dont work, you will have to go underneath your volvo and release it by hand with a screwdriver, try and lift the latch over the catch

SOURCE: Hood Release is broken
It is more likely the cable that runs from the handle inside is broken, either on the handle end or where it connects to the release under the hood.
If it is inside, you're in luck; grab the end of the cable with a pair of vice grips and pull to open.
If it broken under the hood, you may be able to look up to the top of the hood through the grille or from under the front of the car and see where the locking bar fastens to the holder. If you can, you may be able to take a long screwdriver or flat iron and push on it to release it. But make sure you have a replacement part for it first so you don't have to go through the whole thing again. And realize that it will be hard to push on it enough to open it.

the outer cable may have come loose near the lock, if the grille screws are accessable remove the grille and you will have access to the underside of the lock, you may need a screwdriver to push the lock lever aside to unlock the bonnet
