Hi gavilan,
Google your model and year to find an owners club Forum and ask your question on there....... :idea:
UNIX is basically a simple operating system, but you have to be a genius to understand the simplicity.

A key from nothing or a copy of the old key?

Does it have a blade and seperate fob? If you have the fob, a copy key for those is 50€.

Not sure if your Volvo is Ford related, some were, the S40 and V40 used some Focus stuff iirc, may not apply to yours I appreciate, Ford remotes are easy and cheap to program yourself.
But as Enrique says the forums are a good place to go
