    I think I got it, does it have anything to do with a knight move?

    Nope, but it is a minor piece move.

    I tried that, but it only gives you mate in 3, because the king has to step on a black square and can then be attacked by the black bishop.

    A nice one. In one of the variations I at first thought that black just loses material, but then I noticed that it is also mate. Nice. I like Loyd's puzzles also, same as ilywrin.
