Selfmate in 3

It has been a few weeks since we last had a selfmate, so here is one by the composer who is generally regarded as just about the world leader in this genre. The bQ battery along the 6th rank is clearly going to be utilised somehow, but exactly how? Not an easy solve, but I am sure you can get there with a bit of diligence!

Any comments or questions on this problem should be addressed to Steve Giddins, our Librarian and Archivist, using the 'Contact' item in the menu on the left.
