This puzzle is invalid. I think you have got to many characters in line 6 of the puzzle.

If one of the dashes is removed in row 6 box 5, it's a valid hard puzzle and can be solved using logic only.

Code: Select all
 
 *-----------*
 |43.|...|59.|
 |.1.|..3|..2|
 |...|6..|3..|
 |---+---+---|
 |8.5|1.4|..9|
 |...|.7.|...|
 |2..|5.9|1.8|
 |---+---+---|
 |..6|..1|...|
 |1..|9..|.2.|
 |.87|...|.61|
 *-----------*

It's all singles. Start by looking where a 1 can go in box 3 and box 4. Then place a 2 in box 7, and a 6 in box 1 and row 1.
