dpkg --install --force-architecture <package>
should do it.
Take a look at the "--force-things..." part of the dpkg man page in case
you need to specify some other "--force-..." or even "--force-all"

The package might need 32-bit libs, though. Installing the ia32-libs
package will pull in a lot of those - likely all you need and more.
