That was my initial thought as well, but after 2.f4+ black has 2...Kd4!, and there seems to be no quick enough mate. For example, 3.c3+ Kd3 4.Nf2+, and the king still has 4...Kc2.

Why 2... Kxd4 instead of 2... Nxd4?

After 2...Nxd4 or 2...Qxd4 white can give immediate checkmate by 3.f4#.

Why not qxd4 or nxd4 for the second move of the blacks? With a queen sacrifice, the mat can't happend, right? (2.qxd4 3be3 3qxe4!)

after qxd4 simply f4#

WAY too many moves for the two knights at the beginning.
