Default Filtering out from a node set

How do I restrict a collection of data, excluding elements held by another node set?

Main XML Document
<premount row="14">
<premount row="21">
(further inside the document)

    <cust_code>Customer A</cust_code>
    <cust_code>Customer A</cust_code>
My failing XSL snippet
<xsl:for-each select="//result[cust_code='Customer A'][det_code=not(//premount/det_code)]">
(I'm expecting <premount row="21"> to be excluded)
I've tried:
Thanks in advance,
