小説「容疑者Xの献身」(東野圭吾著)感想

容疑者Xの献身
容疑者Xの献身
文藝春秋

『第134回直木賞』受賞。
『第6回本格ミステリ大賞』受賞。
『本格ミステリ・ベスト10 2006年版』1位。
『このミステリーがすごい!2006』1位。
『2005年「週刊文春」ミステリベスト10』1位。


ミステリーにおける主たる賞を総なめした本作。

物理学者の湯川助教授を主人公としたシリーズで、『探偵ガリレオ』『予知夢』に続く第三弾の作品になりますが、前知識は不要です。実際、私はこの作品で初めてシリーズに触れました。

本格ミステリといえば、トリックが肝。本作は、よくある密室殺人モノではありません。「完全犯罪」の定義すらも揺るがしかねない問題作とも言えるでしょう。

使われたトリックを各パーツに分解すれば、それぞれ一度は可能性を考えたものでしたが、どうもそれぞれが結びつきませんでした。

というのも、完全犯罪というには無理があるんですよ。でも、それで良かったんですよね、石神にとっては…。ラストは涙が溢れてしまいました。


この作品、形を変えて読むことも出来ます。石神や湯川が作中で言っていた「幾何の問題に見せかけて、じつは関数の問題」というのを、この作品自体に当てはめて考えることが出来るんです。ただし、考えるに当たって、石神のラスト付近の回想シーンがどのような意味を持つかは最低限踏まえるべきでしょう。そこからたどり着いた結論が真相であるか否かは、読者に委ねられているように感じます。


色々と考察を書いてみたいところだけど、これ以上はネタバレになってしまうのでやめておきます。


この容疑者Xの献身、今秋映画が公開されるそうです。東野圭吾原作であるTVドラマ「ガリレオ」から配役を引き継ぎ、湯川助教授に福山雅治、内海刑事(原作における草薙刑事のポジション?、草薙の後輩という設定)に柴咲コウ、石神役に堤真一、そして花岡靖子役に松雪泰子、娘の美里役に金澤美穂がキャスティングされています。

石神に堤真一というのはイメージがまるで異なる(田口浩正あたりが適任だと思う)のですが、その辺の違いは映画の設定として上手く消化してくれることを期待しています。


確証はありませんが、多分、映画化に合わせて文庫化するんじゃないかなと思います。その際には、興味のある方は是非手にとって読んでみてください。
