Hi jasper welcome to Saab Central;)

Sadly this usually means the seals in the turbo are failing and you will need a new turbo when they finally go, however that could be some time.

Smoke can also be caused by the very poor PCV, engine breathing system, have a look for threads about the PCV system.
