Fortunately, I was able to fix the Volvo's hood. It is not perfect, the hood itself was not changed so it has some damage that you can see if you look carefully. But the car's also otherwise clunky, so no problem. But unfortunately, the repair shop was unable to do anything with the root cause of the hood problem, my stupidity.
So, the car can now come back from its rest period under snow!
What happened? Covered here.
