There's the poppler library, if you don't mind a GPLv2 library. There's a 
python interface to this 
http://svn.pardus.org.tr/uludag/trunk/playground/pypoppler-qt4/ (I haven't 
used this). There's also the muPDF library, but I don't know python 

Alternatively you could just use ghostscript to render each page to a bitmap 
file and make a simple bitmap viewing window in PyQt.
