I wanted to sacrifice the queen too much. When I finally decided that maybe Rd1+ was the right start all along, I then overlooked the pin on the g-pawn after 2.Kh2 Rh1!.

1...Rd1+!

If 2. Be1??, then 2...Rxe1+!

a) 3. Qxe1 Qxg2#

b) 3. Kh2 Re2!, 4. Rh4 Rxf2 and Black is one rook and one bishop up. -+

1...Rd1+

2.Kh2 Rh1+

3.Kxh1 Qxh3+

4.Kg1 Qxc3

It took me about 10 seconds to see the solution.

Embarrassed this took me 10 minutes to work out. Overthinking it on the first move, then overlooking the second one.
