Does the key still pop the trunk/hatch? That would also indicate whether or not it was the key remote. If that function works it's probably nothing on the car (i.e. "receiver") end.
There is a very good SAAB forum that would likely be the best place to find out if somebody has has this issue before and what they have done: www.saabcentral.com

If the car is a manual transmission car, it has a reverse lockout function. The gear shift lever must be in reverse to remove the key.

The more you use your key, the more the key will wear down overtime. Eventually (especially with car keys) the key will not match up to your tumblers in the lock, and will intermittently not work, and eventually not turn at all. Do you have a spare? if so use it see if it works, then have a copy made. If you don't, call the dealership, have them make you another key, or call a locksmith.
Now if the key won't come out of the ignition, that's a whole other issue, but it doesn't sound like this is the case. Hope this helps you out, good luck!

Is it just a "physical" fit problem?
Because if it is merely this and not your electronics you could always buy another key on ebay like this
.......then all you would have to do is pop open the casing like you were going to remove the battery, instead pulling the little circuit board also and replacing it with your own one in your damaged fob!!

If you live in the US, you can take it into an Auto zone store and they will read off the code for you. Once you have the code you can decide a course of action.
Other large automotive parts outlets may offer the same, as they all want your parts business.
Hope this is of some help
