    Amazing that Fritz does not find it.
    Fritz 6 gives mate in 4 however, (Qe3 or Qd4) which of course also is a win.
    You don't get more points by winning fast ..but somehow it is strange to see.

    For me it takes 5sec., may be PC wasn't in a good mood & choose first but a longer solution :)
