Also a couple of changed mates on 1.. Qf6, Qe5, cxd6, Nxf5 in the tries and the solution. 2+3+3 = 8 points in the FIDE Album.

slowbut2 has not yet posted his solution (did he anticipate my hoax?), so let's continue with the content of the composition and some words on the composer:

Shown is the mildly paradoxical Hannelius theme: The tries 1. Qf1? (threat 2. Bf7#), Qg3? (threat 2. Nd8#) fail to 1.. cxd6!, Nxf5! In the solution on these defenses follow (in reversed order) just the mates threatened and refuted in the tries, i.e., on 1.. cxd6, Nxf5 2. Nd8#, Bf7#. FIDE Album.

Leopold Mieczysław Szwedowski (* 27.8.1932) Polish composer and International Master. "Leopold Szwedowski is a direct mate, helpmate and selfmate composer. He is an International Judge for direct mates and selfmates."
