    The queen sac is the only forcing move.  Forcing moves are much easier to calculate.  

    No, I think 1.Ng6+  forces Kh7.  But the Queen sac is still necessary to clear the main diagonal for the dark-squares Bishop.

     

    I meant forcing sequence.  Queen sac to CM is easy to calculate.

    good one indeed.

    I went for the 1. Ng6+ first as well. When you see it to the end you just think that's the right move. But the real solution is mate in 3 not mate in 4. Which is why 1. Ng6+ is not correct.
