The original 27 December puzzle

White to play and mate in two moves

Strange that the "version by J├Ânsson" (as you say
here) should have a cook. So it was cooked twice, or ... Is it possible that this is the *original* diagram and not the version? I have seen that happen before. Does anybody have the original version to compare to?

Richard gave 1.Qh5 for the second solution. I nominate 1.Qg7 for the first.

You'd be right, too. And your question is interesting, is it not?
