While Kxh2 does seem to win the whole N
(and is, therefore, best), Qxh2 seems to
win easily as well.

Exactly, @floreatdunum, what I thought.
Too bad it took a lot of seconds to do
so.

White can pretty much take the N when he
wants, after saving his Ne7.

I would suggest that this is more akin

supported by a bishop.

if you know, how this mechanics work,
then its very very easy to find the
solution. To describe the whole idea
behind the puzzle is much more
complicated. therefore allways look for
a mate ! regards. 

20170819 13:48:09  Bisonratte  1549   Problem p43341 
@ SaintMark, ive some sheets of the
basic mating patterns (maybe google
helps). If you look how bl establishes
the mate (just watch the last position),
then you may detect, there are initial
parts in this puzzle.
