    oooh, just checked it out though. Fritz cannot find the answer. So this can go to people's memory banks as another puzzle to cite when trying to show how awful fritz is 😉

    The full solution:

    1.Ka8 [threat 2.Rh7 and 3.Rxh2] 1...Rh8+ 2.Qe8! Rxe8+
    2...Rh2 3.Re7 and 4.Rxe2+ finishes
    3.Ka7 Ra8+ 4.Kxa8 ~ 5.Ng2#

    Yeah, if Fritz was playing blitz game, he might only have time for 6 moves, and he would have lost that game!!!!

    That being said, I took 10 minutes thinking about the 5 moves, in which time I could have made quite a few :p

    what's stopping black from playing 4. Ne4?
    to me that kinda looks liek it defuses the mate...
    or is there another mate somewhere else
    EDIT: nvm, jst realised that the pawns were going the wrong way
