Since I usually don't know if I want to show the 9th or 8th commit
before HEAD, I do `l l` in the magit buffer to get the short log, and
then I move point on the commit I want to show and hit RET.

But you can also use `magit-show-commit', e.g.,

  M-x magit-show-commit RET HEAD^^^^^^^^^ RET

or equivalently

  M-x magit-show-commit RET HEAD~9 RET

from the magit buffer.
