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.
