Doesn't Nh6x--Nf7+ work as well?

Yes, but that's mate in 3:

What is wrong with QH6.  Is not that Mate or I missing something.

You're missing something beginning with "p" on the g-file.

Nh6+ Rg6 and it's no longer mate in 2 :P

1.Ng7+ Kh8 2.Qh6#

Way too easy for me. Please give me a harder one like mate in 5

try 1. Nh6+,black K can only move to h8,now move,2. Nf7+,that is mate,K can not move,g7 K is in check by Q,and h7 K is in check by B,MAKING IT A MATE,It look's right to me,you did not allow for 2.Nf7 in your analogy,Ithink if you try thoose moves it still comes out to mate in two,try it and you will see it's possible,opp's black R can block 1.Nh6 check,now it's not mate in two my bad,where do we go from here?

Did not realise the reason for the positioning of the knight initially then saw the light!

At the utmost times, a sacrifice is needed.

It does. I tried it out on an analysis board and it is mate if black still plays Kh8. Black could try to prolong the mate for 1 move by playing Rg6 instead, but then White plays Qxg6+ and forces Black to play Kh8, after which White can play Nf7# or Qh7#.

Thank's for correct analogy

It was clear that - since the queen was pinned - the first move should be a discovered check using the knight.  My initial attempt was with
1. Ng2+, (unpinning my Queen)
but that would allow ... Rg6, preventing mate in 2.  It would then be
2. Qxg6+  Kh8  3. Qh7#

1. Ng7+ Kh8   2. Qh6#  is so much cleaner.
