Another annoying problem with this V70 we just bought. Frequently when we get to drive off in it the shift lever wont move, and then again when we stop and turn the engine off the key won't come out of the ignition. Am I right in thinking the two are connected and that the fault lies in the ignition switch?
(Note:- as you proably have realized I am not exactly mechanically minded!!! But I do follow the info on this site and on Brickboard!)

Do you use the shift lock overide do get it out of park?
If so then the button is sticking down.Spray a little WD-40 or something like that.Then press the button and work it in till it moves very easy.
That will fix the key getting stuck.But you might have to replace the shiftlock microswitch located under the center console.
