Sherlock Holmes chess

The black knight is attacked, but onto which square it should go now is only one question (A). The other interesting issue is: what was actually White's last (and best!) move (B), as a reaction in turn to which black move (C)? What do you think, Watson? The solution is here, but first ponder over it with a  larger version of the diagram.
