|White to move Position after move 32 0 half-moves after last pawn advance or capture|
If needed I’ll add the solution to the comments.
1. Rf1+ Kg8
2. Rf8+ Kg7
1. … Kg7

Replaced d8N+ by e8N+ (twice)
Black can delay the mate a little bit by
1.Rf1+ Qf3 2.Rxf3+
In the …Kg8 variation there is also an alternative for white
2…Kg8 3.e8=Q+ Kg7 4.Rf7#
But the main idea about this exercise is that you’ll see the e8N# possibility, so these are only details.

Shouldn’t it end on e8N#? After the three move sequence.
I’ve racked my brain over this, but I don’t see how one promotes on d when there is nothing to force the pawn diagonal.

Of course you are right
