The idea is to move away the wB and mate by 3. e4#. But on 1. Kd5?, Kd7? BxB White has no waiting move. Thus in the key the wK moves out of a check to e7 such that on 1.. BxB there is the tempo move 2. Kd7! on a white square and 3. e4# (model mate). On 1.. Bc1, Bc3, Be1 there follow (slightly dualistic) 2. Bd2 (Bd4), Bd4, Bf2 (Bc1, Bd2). Not that hard.
