Tough one.  I'm a terrible visualizer when I can't move the pieces on an analysis boad (anyone want to play me OTB?), but I think the answer is Qc2.  Black either responds with with Rc3 to prevent Qb2, in which case Qxc3#, or black responds with Bxc2, to which white answers Nxc2#.

Qc2= Bxc2...

Black can respond with ..Rb3 to prevent Qb2 and it's not mate in two.

 

With Qb4:

If ..Bb3, Qc3#
If ..Rb3, Nc2#
If ..Rc3+, Qxc3#

Qb4 also seems to look ok.  Multiple solutions?

Qc2= Bxc2...

But doesn't mean Bxc2 will happen. Qc2, Rb3...

Qc2= Bxc2...

Which could be met with Nxc2#. But Qc2 doesn't guarantee a mate in 2

Qb4

Qc2= Bxc2...

And after Bxc2 you have Nxc2#.

However, PooTooTweet is correct as Qb4 is the only way to mate in 2.
