Can someone explain the end to No Country for Old Men?

No Country for Old Men is a beautiful movie that uses great camera work and the landscape of west Texas to tell its story. I love Cohen brothers movies, and this movie delviered the goods. Great cinematography, pacing, acting, silence, realistic dialogue really make this movie stand above a lot of the schlock that is produced. I'm just confused a bit by the end. Why wouldn't Anton gun down the sherriff in the hotel room? After all, he kills everyone for any small motive. What's up with the visit to his uncle? This was an unconventional story told in an unconventional way. It's a movie I would actually buy.
