black is stupid
There is no mate in four on 1. Nh6+ Kh8 2. Qxf7 g6 3. Bxg6 hxg6.
the result is not correct
I think there is a second solution, starting with 1. Nh6+ Kh8 2. Qf7 threatening 3. Qg8+ and 4. Nf7#.
I see what route you thinking of when you mention the move sequence to mate; however, I found that with your prescribed moves, Black as ample opportunity to delay checkmate... even if it is for a few more moves. A few examples are below.
after g6 Bb2 +
2...g6 3. Bb2+ Bd4 no mate in four.

proof of evidence....
I agree why doesnt black take the queen the attack would have been thwarted
nice!hello madam black queen ur always hiding at d corner!!
Agree with Bryan681972 and blempka on these lines (with 1.. Kh8 and 2.. g6)
1. Nh6+ allows black to delay checkmate to more than four moves
1. Nf6+ is the more efficient mate
Actually I would take the Black Queen with my knight just to spite my opponent.
I strongly believe so. That was my first solution.
