good one

It doesn't make sense, why didn't the king just take the rook in the first place?

This would take a lot of analysis to show that there isn't a faster way.

the bishop on h3 can capture.

After a quick visual calculation and I haven't read all the posts yet, I think quick mating combinational because White's knight is covering c7-square is with 1.Qxd8 Kxd8 2.Rd1+ and now one variation would be...Bd6 (better is...Bd7 variations but White still has good chances) 3.Rxd6+ Kc8 4.Re8#

what's wrong with:

1. Be6+ Qd7 (forced)

2. Qxd7#

bartimolo, its not mate because there is a bishop on h3 that captures your white bishop

This is certainly a neat puzzle.  I enjoyed it. It did take several tries for me,and at least for me, was not obvious.  Although if I was playing  black on move 5 I would have captured the Rook on d7 instead of moving to c8, which the King did eventually.  Unless I missed or overlooked something, I think he could have done so.  That threw me off.  I am sure there is a reason the King did not do so on move 5, I just don't see it at this time.  I will have to look again.  Anyone know?
