Declarer begins with the HQ, squeezing East in all suits.  East dislikes the prospects of discarding the DQ, knowing West will be finessed.

Conceding a Club also looks hopeless so East discards the SQ, hoping West controls the suit (true here). 

South continues with the CK, this time squeezing West to play the D9; North's S6, the last outstanding Spade, is a  known threat card which forces West to hold the SK.  Declarer can now run Diamonds.
