    And a bit misleading Since White cannot do this in 5 moves the only possibility would be:
    1.Nf(h3) h6!! 2.Ng5 hg 3. g3(g4) Rxh2 4.Bh3 Rxh3 5. a4 (g4) Rxh1 #

    Yes, it is Black who mates.
    Sorry for any confusion.
    Note the the last move is not a capture.

    That was a tough one! My girlfriend saw the idea of Bxb7, and I finished it from there...
