Just managed it my three attempts
DonĀ“t really know why it is only 2.5 stars but only has a 19% solve rate, whatever it is a good two mover!

tough one
It took a while to solve. I think I first tried it and didn't think it would work making the search even longer. Only two moves to mate and four aspirin.

logical
just needed to move the queen to a case from wich it can reach the 8th row from two sides around black's king.
only two cases who offer this can be reached. g2 and h2. g2 is no good because a8 and g8
are assymetric around black's king, letting him a way to escape. so puzzle is solved, Qh2. two stars and a half is the real difficulty, i guess.

Qh7 is also mate in two. Why it is not the solution?

"Qh7 is also mate in two. Why it is not the solution?"

Because it isn't mate in two.

1. Qh7 Bb4 2. Qf7 Kd8 3. Qd7# is the fastest forced mate after 1. Qh7.

Love the very few piece-puzzle.
Was going for h7, what did he miss, when I was proven wrong. Erik Gustav Shultz lives though this today.

chess efficiency reached
stbou, used the logic and my work was much faster! thank you.

Qb2 is also a case you forgot where the queen can reach the backrow, but no good because the bishop blocks one path with Bb4, prepared for a blocking move after remaining Qh8.
