Adapted for the screen by John Ajvide Lindqvist from his critically acclaimed novel Let The Right One In is a tender film about friendship, love, loneliness and loyalty.
It's quite possible that she did truly love him, and wanted him to be with him forever (the books support this theory) however, it's also just as possible that Eli was manipulating Oskar right from that start and intends to make him her next "Hakan" who himself is a perfect foreshadowing of what possibly awaits Oskar should he stay with Eli.
