In what way does the key not work? If it won't turn, just keep lubricating and trying the lock.

Connect battery charger or jump leads as illustrated below then use remote fob to pop open the boot lid.
The unconnected Positive+ lead should not be touching any metal part of the boot metal work, it will be unlikely that it is as the positive cable is quite rigid and doesn’t hang down on to the floor.
