and A French inquiry

I have decided to only read French books over the summer, to keep my mind in the game between course 1 and 2.

I am trying to work my way through La Mécanique du Cœur, by Mathias Malzieu (lead singer of one of my all-time favourite bands Dionysos). I am only a little way through the first part, and what do you know... I got stumped on the second sentence of the book:

"Un froid de canard paranormal cadenasse la ville."

...along with some other sentences, but this one really bugs me.

Is it a colloquial expression? Because I cannot wrap my head around a cold, paranormal duck padlocking the town.
