The surprising and spectacular key sacrifices the wN on e5 giving a flight and threatening 2. Qxd4# (which also follows on 1.. KxN all other captures create a self-block on e5). On 1.. BxN, RxN the Grimshaw interferences are used with 2. dxe6#, Nd6#. If the bQ takes this is used just as a self-block by 2. Qh1#. Finally 1.. NxN gives up the guard of d4 so that 2. Rxd4# works. A task-like problem.
