I assume you mean 4.Bf5, but after a move by black, 5. Qf8+ is not mate, as the king can move to g5, since the queen is no longer covering this square.

The line kayzingzingy is referring to is 2...Kg8 3. g7 Nf5.  Then 4. Bxf5 threatens an unstoppable 5. Qf8#.

If 4. f8Q+ then Kh5, and no mate in five for white.
