Once you become familiar with black’s main drawing idea in this endgame, the solution is not hard to find.  Black aims to hinder the white king’s approach while advancing his own king at the same time.  This well-known endgame technique is called ‘shouldering’.  White wins by first preventing this, at the cost of a tempo!


This study features a spectacular and diabolical solution based on the fact that the black king is surprisingly short of flight squares.  Well done if you managed to solve this in its entirety as its a hard puzzle!
