I'm guessing you'll need to pull off the valve cover and replace the o-rings as well as sealant. Most cars I've worked on this is easy, just buy a new gasket. But in searching online it appears you need silicone sealant:

and the o-rings:

If the smoke abates, probably. If smoke continues no, that would mean it's getting into the cylinders from somewhere.

Just make sure the smoke isn't white and smells like donuts...check your coolant level. If it has reduced, you could have a warped head and burning coolant. This would call for taking the head off, making it true and installing a new head gasket. And by the way, you DO NOT use a silicone sealant on the valve cover. It needs to be an anaerobic sealant. You can buy non-volvo sealant of this type for less (check fcpeuro.com for it). Good luck!!
