Mate in 3

White wastes time, moving his queen too early and neglect­ing kingside development. Black counters by advancing the d-pawn, taking advantage of an e-file pin. Suddenly, Black sacrifices a knight, forcing the king to take, and White loses the right to castle. A furious chase ensues, impelled by sharp tactics. The white king is hunted up the board and finally mated in a criss-cross.

Whistle  From this position how does Black mate in 3 moves ?
