In the PostgreSQL issues section:

4. no built in way to terminate connections to a database (cf. MS SQL "KILL" command)


Doesn't the pg_cancel_backend(pid) serve that function? It kills the process that the connection ties to, and thus renders the connection worthless.


Table 9-52. Server Signalling Functions Name Return Type Description pg_cancel_backend(pid int) boolean Cancel a backend's current query


Unfortunately this does not terminate the connection but the query running in the backend for that connection,
at least as far as I know, so this does not help us here, you still can't delete the database in question.
See the debates about a "pg_terminate_backend()" function on the various postgres lists



Also security through grant/revoke should be used on tablespace :

REVOKE ALL ON tablespace <TS_NAME> FROM public;

GRANT ALL ON tablespace <TS_NAME> TO <DBROLE> with grant option;
