I have seen queen getting trapped in mid game situations or even in the game openings, but seriously, to conceive of such a puzzle is amazing.

Great puzzle!

Stockholm stank very badly today. He loves the smell, that's why he has no time for chess right now. But he will hopefully be back after a windy day.


 These negative comments are uncalled for!  If the air is so rosy smelling where you are then what are you whining about?   


Whining? Negative?

DENSE!

Very good move, no matter where the queen moves, she's forked or dead.

There is no square where the queen can avoid capture or fork what so ever.
Qxc8 is forced. Good puzzle, id feel a little unlucky as black to find my queen in such a feeble situation

No matter where the Queen moves, the Knight or the Rook either takes or the Knight forks the King and Queen
